The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has expanded an earlier recall announced by Reser’s Fine Foods on Oct. 26. Hundreds of thousands pounds of refrigerated convenience foods have been added to the growing list due to concerns that they may contain Listeria monocytogenes.
The Beaverton, Ore.-based company stressed that the affected products concerning this particular recall were manufactured at the Topeka, Kan. Salad manufacturing facility; this recall does not involve any of their other food products distributed out of other facilities.
Numerous varieties of ready-to-eat potato, macaroni and egg salads, including cole slaw, seafood and dips were sold nationwide including Canada to retailers and food establishments.
Consumers should take particular notice of the mass list – the official list available at the FDA website – of the Use-by-Date or Best-By-Date followed by the plant identifier code of 20 for this recall.
No illness as a result of this recall has been reported to date.
Consumers may return any food products affected as a result of this recall back to the place where they were purchased for a full refund or just discard the product.
