Freshway Foods Recalls Salads Made With Pre-Chopped Romaine Lettuce Sold at Schnucks Stores for Possible E. coli O157:H7

Freshway Foods is recalling salads made with pre-chopped romaine lettuce sold at Schnucks stores due to the multistate outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 HUS infections that has sickened 35 people in 11 states. There is no mention yet of this recall on the FDA web site; a recall is listed on the Schnucks recall page.

The notice on the Schnucks page states, “As a result of a multistate outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 infections linked to chopped romaine lettuce, Freshway Foods is recalling select chopped romaine lettuce sold at Schnucks Delis and Salad Bars.” This recall does not mean that these products are linked to the outbreak.

If you purchased any of the following products, do not eat them. They include any product from the self-service salad bar that contains romaine lettuce; and any of these salads from the self-service deli or prepared foods area: Apple Walnut Salad, Greek Salad, Cobb Salad, and Tossed Garden Salad.

Do not eat these salads. Throw them away in a sealed package so other people and animals can’t get at them. Or you can take them to the place of purchase and get a refund. And if you have any pre chopped romaine lettuce in your home, throw it away, even if part of it has been consumed and no one got sick.

If you ate those products or any pre-chopped romaine lettuce products in the last 10 days, be aware of the symptoms of E. coli food poisoning. Those symptoms include serious and painful stomach and abdominal cramps, and diarrhea that is bloody or watery. Symptoms can appear a few days to a week after you have been exposed to the pathogenic bacteria. If you do feel sick, see your doctor and tell her you ate these recalled products. She will conduct a test to see if you have this illness.
