Taylor Farms is recalling broccoli salad and slaw that is for sale in 25 states in the eastern and southern portions of the United States, according to an ABC News report on Saturday. Reportedly, the broccoli salad and slaw may be contaminated with Listeria.
In a statement from Taylor Farms, the packaged vegetables include ingredients that were previously recalled this past week by Reser’s Fine Foods. The packaged food has been sold at deli counters in supermarket chains which include Stop & Shop, Acme Markets, Shoprite, Shaw’s, and Price Chopper – and others – from Oct. 19 to Oct. 24. Winn-Dixie and Giant Food have removed the items from their markets and are offering refunds to their customers.
Thus far, there have been no reports of illnesses related to the food items. In the process of the recall, Reser’s has recalled some-109,000 cases of the refrigerated, ready-to-eat items distributed throughout Canada as well as the United States. The food may contain Listeria monocytogenes bacterium which can cause miscarriages for pregnant women and serious illnesses for persons who have weakened immune systems.
