Md. Firm Recalls Salad Kits

Posted:

JESSUP, Md. - Taylor Farms, a Jessup, Md. firm, is recalling almost 5,084 pounds of broccoli salad kit products.

The kits have salad dressing packets that are part of a Food and Drug Administration recall. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Friday that there are concerns about possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The products recalled include:

-6.06 lb. boxes labeled "Taylor Farms Broccoli Crunch with Bacon and Dressing" with the case code 310151, produced Oct. 21 and Oct. 22, 2013.

-12.13 lb. boxes labeled "Taylor Farms Broccoli Crunch with Bacon and Dressing" with case code 310153, produced Oct. 21-Oct. 13.

The salad kits were shipped to distributors and retail locations in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Vermont.

The FSIS, FDA and the company have not received any reports of illnesses related to these products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenescan cause listeriosis, which is a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, pregnant women and their newborns, and those with weakened immune systems.
