First it was nut-butter for a Salmonella scare and now it’s packaged Caesar salad kits – but this time it’s for possible Listeria contamination. The salad kits were sold nationwide at Sam’s Club stores.
Although two salad kits tested positive for listeria, no illnesses have been reported. Note – listeria can have an incubation period as long as two months. Listeria can primarily affects pregnant women and their newborns, older adults and people with weakened immune systems. If you think you may have been exposed, please contact your physician.
The recalled products are: 11 oz. clear plastic containers and 6.5-lb. boxes labeled “APPA Fine Foods/Sam’s Club Daily Chef CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD KIT” with case codes 141851, 141922, 141951, 141991, 142021, 142201 or 142131, with use-by dates of 8/14/14, 8/21/14, 8/27/14, 9/1/14, 9/3/14 or 9/17/14.
