Pre-packaged Salads and Sandwich Recalled

I’ve been featuring different sort of stuff ranging from foods, supplements and medicines that has been recalled either by health officials or the company itself and or both in my previous posts. And this one is no difference from them all as Richmond-based Glass Onion Catering is recalling a reported more than 90 tons of ready-to-eat salads and sandwiches because they may be contaminated with Escherichia Coli or E. coli.

And to be more specific, the products that are being recalled were produced between 13 Sept and 14 Nov 2013. Reports says that it was shipped in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Texas. And there have been several people in three states who were sickened after eating pre-packaged salads with grilled chicken.

The recalled pre-packaged salads and sandwich wraps that reportedly have E. coli contains cooked chicken and ham. The Food Safety and Inspection Service say that the E. coli bacteria causes dehydration, bloody stools and abdominal cramps and to some, it come develop a form of kidney failure especially to young children and the elderly.

While full investigation is under way to pin point any source of contamination, the FDA is encouraging consumers who purchased the contaminated products to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund or dispose of it. And if you want to see the full lists of products being recalled, check the Food and Drug Administration’s website at:
