Whole Foods Salads Recalled for Possible E. coli O157:H7

More salads have been recalled in the wake of an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak in western states. The FDA and Whole Foods Market are recalling ready-to-eat Artichoke Wheatberry Salad and Southwest SooFoo Salads as a preventive measure after the large Glass Onion Catering recall because they may be contaminated with the pathogenic bacteria.

Important RecallThe salads have expiration dates between November 9 and November 13, 2013. They were sold in California Whole Foods Stores. The PLU numbers for the Artichoke Wheatberry Salad are 28563300000 and 28563400000. The PLU numbers for the Southwest SooFoo Salad are 28563700000 and 28563800000. The salads were sold during an unspecified time period.

These are the ten stores that sold the salad: 1710 41st Ave. in Capitola; 311 Mowry Ave. in Fremont; 230 Bay Place in Oakland; 3502 Mt. Diablo Blvd. in Layfayette; 15980 Los Gatos Blvd. in Los Gatos; 3682 Bel Aire Plaza in Napa; Noe Valley at 3950 24th Street in San Francisco; 1250 Jefferson Ave. in Redwood City; 1010 Park Pl. in San Mateo; and 1333 Newell Avenue in Walnut Creek. The salads were sold from the fresh deli case, the salad bar, and/or pre-packed pint or half pine containers in the Prepared Foods department.

If you purchased these salads, discard them. Bring a receipt to the store for a refund. If you ate the salads, monitor yourself for symptoms of an E. coli infection, which can include severe abdominal cramps, fever, and diarrhea that may be bloody. To date, 26 people have become ill in this outbreak; but none of the illnesses are linked to products specifically sold at Whole Foods Market.
