You might want to check your freezer as Conagra Brands has recalled Banquet chicken nugget meal trays due to possible Salmonella contamination, the company announced Thursday. 

According to Conagra Brands, the source material used in the brownie mix may be contaminated with Salmonella. The chicken nugget meals include macaroni and cheese and a chocolate brownie. 

The recalled products have a  “BEST IF USED BY” date of July 20, 2018, and Code 3100080921.
