Bagged Salad Recall Initiated After Product Tested Positive For Salmonella
Bagged Salad Recall – Taylor Farms’ Fresh Selections are being pulled from store shelves nationwide.
A random test of a finished package of spinach triggered the measure. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced the recall of 3,265 cases of various salad blends because of the possibility they may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The test was done by the State of Washington Department of Agriculture, but the bagged salad products were distributed to numerous states, including Virginia. The FDA says there have been no reported illnesses as a result of the product.
According to a press release from Fred Meyer Stores, customers should check their refrigerators and throw out the following Fresh Selections bagged salads with a sell by date of 10-18-2011: Field Greens Salad, Leafy Romaine, Romaine Salad Blend and Hearts of Romaine.
Fred Meyer has removed all affected items from store shelves and has begun notifying customers of the measure through its customer notification system. If you have purchased one of the items, you may receive a register receipt message and/or an automated phone call.
Any opened or unopened products included in this measure should be returned to your local Fred Meyer store for a full refund or replacement.
Customers with questions about the recall are being asked to call Fred Meyer toll free at 800-576-4377 or Taylor Farms at 877-323-7374.
