The product liability attorneys at Breslin and Breslin are reporting that a New Jersey company has recalled nearly 100,000 pounds of salad, some of it distributed to New Jersey retailers, because it may be contaminated with E.coli, federal inspectors announced Thursday.
Missa Bay LLC, which is based in Swedesboro, has recalled 97,272 pounds of salad products that contain meat or poultry because the lettuce ingredient may be contaminated with E.coli, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said.
The products, some of which tested positive for E.coli O157:H7, were produced between Oct. 14 and 16.
The recall includes various ready-made salads sold under store brands from Walmart, Target, ALDI, Safeway, and others.
ALDI released a statement:
“We take the safety and integrity of the products we sell very seriously. The two products ALDI sold that were included in this recall, Little Salad Bar Chicken Caesar Salad and Little Salad Bar Santa Fe Style Salad, had been removed from our shelves already and they are past their use-by dates. All of the products currently on our shelves are safe to eat If customers still have the products mentioned in the recall with a use by date prior to November 2, 2019, they should not consume them and should discard them immediately or return them to their local store for a full refund.”
Federal food safety investigators said it’s likely that more salad will be impacted by this recall; residents in the affected states should watch for updates.
