Interstate E. Coli Outbreak Leads to Salad Recall

November 26, 2019

Commercial kitchens and other food preparers will want to be extra cautious about the salads they use after a food company recalled more than 75,000 pounds of salad products due to an E. coli outbreak in eight states, CNN reports.

Health officials tested a Ready Pac brand chicken Caesar salad distributed by Missa Bay, LLC and found it contaminated with E. coli, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The salad items in question were shipped to distribution centers in 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.

So far, 17 people in eight states—Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Maryland, Montana, Washington and Wisconsin—have been affected.Seven people have been hospitalized, with two developing kidney failure that is associated with this type of E. coli bacteria.

The CDC is investigating whether other products are connected to the outbreak.
