Lettuce

(Meredith) -- A food manufacturer is recalling more than 97,000 pounds of salad products because the lettuce may be contaminated with E. coli, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday. 

The salads, which contain meat or poultry, were sold at various restaurants and grocery stores, including Walmart and Domino's.

New York-based company Missa Bay produced the salads from Oct. 14, 2019 through Oct. 16, 2019.

The salads were then shipped to distribution locations in 22 states, which include:Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The Maryland Department of Health tested the salad as part of a foodborne illness outbreak and discovered the lettuce tested positive for E. coli O157:H7, which prompted the recall. 

FSIS is concerned that some products may still be in distribution centers, restaurants, or institutional refrigerators or freezers. Restaurants and institutions that have purchased these products are urged not to serve them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

Most people with E. coli (STEC) infections develop diarrhea and vomiting. Many people recover within a week, but, rarely, some develop a more severe infection.

Anyone with questions about the recall can contact Mary Toscano, the Consumer Affairs Manager for Bonduelle, at 1-800-800-7822.
