    Health officials said dozens of people have gotten sick in five states after a salmonella outbreak involving broiled chicken liver products.

    On Tuesday, a recall was issued for the products, which are manufactured by the Schreiber Processing Corporation based in New York. The recall involves broiled livers that appear ready-to-eat but in fact still need to be fully cooked.

    It includes:

    • 10 lb. boxes with two, 5 lb. bags of "Meal Mart Broiled Chicken Liver: Made for Further Thermal Processing"
    • 10 lb. boxes of loose packed "Chicken Liver Broiled"

    Each of the products has an establishment number P-787 inside the USDA mark of inspection.

    The products were distributed throughought New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Minnesota. That includes A&L Foods Inc. in Baltimore, according to the USDA.

    At least 169 people in five states, including Maryland, have gotten sick from consuming the products, according to the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy. The majority of the cases involve patients in New York and New Jersey. In Maryland, those cases involve seven adults and two children.

    Health officials say there have been no deaths associated with the outbreak.
