According to MSN News today, August 26, 2014, APPA Fine Foods out of California is recalling 93,000 pounds of their pre-packaged Chicken Caesar Salad due to fears that it may be contaminated by listeria.
The recalled Chicken Caesar Salad is sold in mainly within all Sam's Club Stores.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says the Daily Chef salad kits were shipped to the warehouse chain for sale in its in-store cafes nationwide.
The affected products by Corona's APPA Fine Foods come in 11-ounce clear plastic containers with use-by dates through Sept. 17.
The USDA and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.
People who consume food contaminated with listeria are at risk of getting listeria, which can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion and convulsions.
The recalling of pre-packaged salads is becoming quite a common event and the reason is very simple. There is very little oversight within the companies which make these products and when such products are sealed within plastic, bacteria can multiply. The best course of action for any consumer to take is simple: avoid all pre-packaged salad mixes.
