Bagged Salads & Lettuce Recalled

Farmers Market and Hy-Vee branded bagged lettuce and salad mixes are being recalled by producer River Ranch Fresh Foods, LLC, of Salinas, California.

The concern behind this recall is Listeria monocytogenes. That’s the same bacteria which caused a deadly outbreak last month, as contaminated cantaloupes spread across the country. That outbreak has been the deadliest known foodborne illness in 25 years, 23 people have died, 116 sickened.

At this point though, no illnesses or deaths have been reported related to this lettuce recall. The company’s announcement, released by the USDA, stated that the recall was voluntary, and that it was issued due to the potential of contamination. The recall was issued after a routine random test was done by the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

2,154 cases of the bagged lettuce and salads are affected by the recall. The brand names, products, upc codes and ‘best by’ dates are:
