Chickens contaminated with Salmonella have been found in the grocery stores in Bulgaria's city of Plovdiv after an inspection by the Regional Directorate for Food Safety.

The contaminated meat was a part of a batch produced and imported from Poland, BGNES informs. The batch has been distributed in 17 cardboard boxes.

The EU Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed has already sent a notification for the infected batch which has been sold mainly in France.
