August 22, 2014 — Sam’s Club and APPA Fine Foods are recalling about 92,500 pounds of fully cooked chicken Caesar salad kits after two samples tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that can cause severe food poisoning.
No illnesses have been reported.
The USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) is recalling salad kits that were shipped to Sam’s Club bulk warehouse chains nationwide and sold in the in-store cafe.
Products included in the recall:
- APPA Fine Foods / Sam’s Club Daily Chef CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD KIT: 11-oz. clear plastic containers and 6.5-pound boxes with case codes 141851, 141922, 141951, 141991, 142021, 142201 or 142131 with use by dates of 8/14/14, 8/21/14, 8/27/14, 9/1/14, 9/3/14 or 9/17/14. The kits were produced on July 4, July 11, July 14, July 18, July 21, July 25, Aug. 1 and Aug. 8, 2014.
Two samples purchased from one location tested positive for Listeria, according to the Michigan Department of Agriculture. Only the chicken tested positive for Listeria.
Symptoms of listeriosis infection include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions. These symptoms are sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.
Although most healthy adults recover without long-term complications, invasive infections can spread beyond the gastrointestinal tract and cause life-threatening side effects. Pregnant women may suffer a miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or other side effects in a newborn. Older adults, young children, and people with weak immune systems are also more likely to experience serious complications.
