CC Kitchens Recalling Salad and Slaw Kits for Possible Listeria

CC Kitchens is recalling some of their salad and slaw kits for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. This recall was initiated by the process of leafy greens. There were positive test results for the presence of Listeria in portions of their facility.

These products were packaged by CC Kitchens on May 31 through June 5, 2017. This recall is being issued in coordination with USDA. You can see the list of recalled products, their sizes, sell by dates, and UPC numbers at the FDA web site. Some of these products include Garden Salad, Chef Side Salad, Fiesta Slaw, Trail Slaw Kit, Beef Ponzu Kit, and others. They were distributed only through Kroger stores in Ohio, Michigan, and West Virginia.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall, but listeriosis, the illness caused by this bacteria, can take up to 70 days to appear. If you purchased these items, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed container or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.

Clean out your refrigerator with a solution of one tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach and one gallon of hot water to kill any bacteria. Listeria can grow at refrigerator temperatures. Wash your hands well after handling these salads.

If you ate any of these recalled products, watch yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. They include severe headache, high fever, stiff neck, nausea, abdominal pain, stiffness, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only have a mild illness similar to the flu, but listeriosis can cause premature labor, miscarriage, and stillbirth. If you do have any symptoms, go see your doctor.
