Reser’s Recalls 19 Refrigerated Salad Items
Reser’s Fine Foods Inc. has recalled 19 of its refrigerated salad products as a result of potential Listeria monocytogenes present in the products’ onions.
The company, which operates out of Beaverton, Ore., says it was notified of the potential risk by one of its onion suppliers.
Reser’s and Private Label products affected by the recall were distributed between March 22 and April 10, 2016.
The products being recalled were distributed to retailers and distribution centers in Hawai’i, as well as 29 other states and British Columbia.
There have been no reported illnesses in connection to the products.
In a press release, Reser’s Fine Foods notes that “The recall was the result of a notification from one of our onion supplier that the bacteria may be present in one lot of onions used in the manufacture of these refrigerated salads. No other items were manufactured using this lot of onions.”
Anyone with products listed as being recalled should not consume the salads and instead take them back to the store for a refund or discard them.
Listeria monocytogenes could cause high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. It can also sometimes cause fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems.
Consumers can identify the products by checking to see if its ends with a “#10” at the end of the line of printing.
The Deli Counter items listed are marked with S1317 at the end of the line of printing.
