After two Listeria recalls, more bad foods for Reser’s Fine Foods. Investigators from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) say Listeria has “maintained a presence” at Reser’s facility in Halifax, NC since 2013, according to an FDA warning letter to the company made public this week.
Salads produced by Reser’s Fine Foods were recalled for Listeria in 2013 and earlier this year. During FDA inspections in 2013, 2014 and 2015 environmental samples collected from the plant were positive for Listeria.
Samples collected on November 3-5, 2015, confirmed that some positive samples were from food contact surfaces. Four environmental swabs from inside the processing room were positive for Listeria.
