FDA, USDA Update Retail List for Recalled E. coli Salads, Wraps

The USDA and FDA have issued an updated retail list of stores that sold the Glass Onion Catering chicken and ham salads and wraps that have been recalled for possible E. coli O157:H7 contamination. There is an outbreak associated with this recall. As of November 21, 2013, there are 32 people ill in 4 states.

Important RecallThe recalled products were sold in Trader Joe’s stores in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington state. The outbreak is linked to two Trader Joe’s salads. Walgreens stores sold the salad in northern California, as did Whole Food stores.

Look through the long list carefully. It mentions retailers, the street address, and city by name. All of the remaining stores are in California. Some of the stores that carried the products include Quik Stop, Circle K, Shell, More for Less, Chevron, Real Foods, and Simply Smart Foods. Several food banks also had the recalled salads and wraps, including Roadrunner Food Bank in Albuquerque, New Mexico; San Antonio Food Bank in San Antonio, Texas; Utah Food Bank in Salt Lake City, Utah; West Seattle Food Bank in Seattle, Washington; and F.I.S.H. of Orchards in Vancouver, Washington.

The symptoms of an E. coli O157:H7 infection include severe abdominal cramps, watery and/or bloody diarrhea, possible mild fever, and possible nausea and vomiting. Most people recover within a week, but some become so ill they need to be hospitalized. One of the complications of an E. coli O157:H7 infection is hemolytic uremic syndrome which can destroy the kidneys. In this outbreak, 32% of ill persons have been hospitalized.
