We are collaborating with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety & Inspection Services (FSIS) and have voluntarily expanded the previous stuffed chicken breast recall (July 2, 2015) to include all production associated with a specific whole muscle raw material processed in our Portland (ME) facility on nine productions dates from February 2015 through May 2015.
You can read about the recall here.
It is important for you to know that we are working collaboratively with the USDA to modify our production practices including, but not limited to, additional levels of microbiological analysis and additional control procedures to reduce Salmonella in both incoming and outgoing raw stuffed chicken breast products. Please visit our FAQ page or call our customer hotline at 844-564-5555 between 8:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. (CT) with any questions.
Barber Foods would like to thank you for your support, questions and interest pertaining to the recall. Currently, our customer hotline is experiencing a high volume of calls and we'd like to assure you that we are making every effort to answer and return your call.

If you have a raw Barber Stuffed Chicken breast product that is not on that list, please cook it in an oven only according to package instructions reaching an internal temperature of 165°F as measured by meat thermometer and enjoy. Again, thank you for your patience and support!
Our New Recipe Is Coming Late This Summer
In 1955 Gus Barber opened his corner meat shop with the simple promise of serving his customers only the very best. The result was the Original Frozen Stuffed Chicken Breast that we are still proudly making today in his hometown of Portland, Maine.
To celebrate our 60-year anniversary, we have made our Original Stuffed Chicken Breast even better by crafting our best recipe ever. With your help we've improved your favorite stuffed chicken breast with a new blend of seasonings, authentic home-style breading, more flavorful chicken, improved ingredients and cheeses, and more of "The Good Stuff".
