Health Canada is issuing a warning about frozen breaded chicken products.

They say most of those products contain raw chicken that can cause Salmonella if not prepared and cooked properly.

This includes chicken nuggets, chicken strips, chicken burgers, popcorn chicken and chicken fries.

This comes as hundreds of Canadians have gotten sick from undercooked frozen breaded chicken over the past 16 months, including recalls for seven different products.

They are warning consumers not to eat these products until they are cooked to an internal temperature of at least 74°C (165°F).
