Fresh Express Salad recalled again
For the third time since May, Fresh Express, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chiquita Brands International, is voluntarily recalling certain salad products – this time due to possible Listeria contamination.
Fresh Express says in a statement, that the company is "voluntarily recalling 2,825 cases of Veggie Lovers Salad with a Product Code of I208 and Use-by date of August 10, 2010 out of an abundance of caution," even though nobody has reportedly gotten sick so far. Each case holds 12 bags, so approximately 34,000 bags are being recalled. Fresh Express spokesman Ed Loyd tells CNN "that's about 30,000 bags out of 720 million bags we produce in a year."
The lettuce may be found in as many as 26 states. According to the company statement, these bags of lettuce were shipped to 13 states (MO, MI, OH, IL, WI, IN, MD, MA, NY, KS, KY, PA, NJ) and possibly redestributed to 14 states (AR, TN, WV, IA, MN, VA, VT, NH, NE, RI, PA, CT, MS, ME).
Loyd tells CNN that Fresh Express was notified about the possible contamination Tuesday morning and sent out a release by the end of the day. He says since it's past the products' expiration date, these bags of lettuce should no longer be available for sale. However, consumers could still have some of this lettuce in their refrigerators, and if they do, they should throw it out.
Last month Fresh Express had to recall some romaine lettuce due to possible E. coli contamination and in May, the company recalled certain packages of salad due to possible salmonella contamination.
