The New Jersey products liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are reporting that a fresh octopus salad dish sold at Wegmans is being recalled because routine testing found listeria, according to a statement from the Food and Drug Administration. The salad was produced by Uoriki Fresh, Inc, from Seacaucus, New Jersey, which is the company conducting the recall.
The affected octopus salad was distributed to only one Wegmans store in Manalapan, New Jersey, and it was sold between December 18 and 24. If you bought an eight-ounce container or paid by the pound for the salad, which had a “best before” date between December 21 and 24, you might be affected.
Though no illnesses have been reported, listeria contamination can lead to symptoms that range from annoying to fatal. If you’re a healthy adult, you can deal with a fever, headache, and gastrointestinal symptoms. But young children, elderly people, and people with compromised immune systems can have a sometimes fatal reaction to listeria, and pregnant woman could deal with miscarriages or stillbirths.
If you purchased the recalled octopus salad, authorities urge you to either throw it out or return it to Wegmans. If you have questions, you can contact Wegmans Consumer Affairs department tat 1-855-934-3663.
