If you’ve purchased salad recently, there’s a chance that it’s contaminated! That said you should really go check your fridge and clean it out, like now! The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) released a statement yesterday stating that over 75, 000 pounds of Missa Bay salad products may be contaminated with E. coli. This recall affects 22 states including 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.

There are a few important things to note. Firstly, only salads that contain meat or poultry that were produced between October 14, 2019, through October 16, 2019, are susceptible to the contamination. The Maryland Department of Health tested an unopened package of Ready Pac Bistro Chicken Raised Without Antibiotics Caesar Salad and it tested positive for E. Coli. All products from the same lot have been included in the recall. To see the full list read HERE.

E. Coli is a type of bacteria that can cause diarrhea, cramping, and vomiting. Young children and older adults have a higher risk of more-serious complications caused by the infection. Be sure to contact a health care professional if you suspect you’re experiencing symptoms of E. Coli.
