The FDA is announcing that the BI-LO store at 500 Furys Ferry Road in Martinez, Georgia is recalling Taylor Farms Spinach Antipasti Salad because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. This is an expansion of an earlier recall by Reser’s Foods. No other BI-LO stores are affected by this recall.
The Taylor Farms Spinach Antipasti Salad was sold between October 19 and October 27, 2013. If you purchased this salad, return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
