Reser’s Fine Foods, Inc. of Beaverton, Oregon is recalling nineteen refrigerated salad items due to the onion supplier that found the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes in one lot of onions used in the manufacture of these salads. No other items were manufactured using this lot of onions.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometime fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and individuals with weakened immune systems. Healthy people may suffer only short term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recalled refrigerated salads were distributed to retailers in the following states: AL, AR, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, MI, MN, MO, MT, NC, NE, NM, NV, OH, OK, OR, PA, SD, TN, TX, UT, WA, WY, and British Columbia.

The retail product is sold in plastic containers, marked with a Use By Date and the #10 at the end of the line of printing and distributed between March 22, 2016 and April 10, 2016
