CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Consumers are warned about a recall involving refrigerated, ready-to-eat salad products manufactured by Reser's Fine Foods of Beaverton, Ore., according to West Virginia Commissioner of Agriculture Walt Helmick.
The product is sold under a variety of brand labels including 7-11, Aldi, Safeway, Sav-a-lot, Sysco, Walmart and Yoder, among others. The packages will be marked with a Use-by or Best-By date, followed by a plant identifier code of 20.
Although there have been no confirmed illnesses associated with these products, Reser's expanded an existing recall Saturday on concerns products from its Topeka, Kan., facility might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria is an organism which can cause serious and sometime fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and individuals with weakened immune systems. Healthy people may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant woman.
