If you’ve got pre-made salads in your fridge, or know someone who does, you need to check this recall.
About 75,000 pounds of pre-made salad products containing meat or poultry were recalled because the lettuce in them may be contaminated with E. coli.
The salad-bowl style salads from Missa Bay, LLC, were produced between Oct. 14 and Oct. 16, 2019 and and distributed to locations in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin. They also bear establishment number “EST. 18502B” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The 38 salad bowl varieties affected by the recall are listed here. All of them are already three weeks or more past their expiration dates.
The E.coli was discovered by Maryland health officials who tested an unopened package of Ready Pac Bistro Chicken Raised Without Antibiotics Caesar Salad as part of a foodborne illness outbreak investigation. The lettuce tested positive for E. coli. All products from the same lot of lettuce are included in the recall.
These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
