Secondary Recalls Issued For Salads and Wraps Made With Possibly Contaminated Corn

A flurry of secondary recalls have been issued after a producer, who has not been named, has recalled corn for possible Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes contamination. There is zero tolerance for Listeria bacteria in any ready-to-eat product. These recalled foods are ready-to-eat salads and wraps. No illnesses have been reported to date.

One of the recalls, for Hy-Vee meat and potato products, mentioned that their supplier is McCain Foods, which recalled caramelized mushrooms and fire-roasted tomatoes for these two pathogens. We don’t know if McCain supplied the companies in the other recalls.

We’ll collect all the secondary recalls as they are issued on this page so you can keep track. Be sure to check back every day to make sure you are informed. These are the recalls.

Hy-Vee recalled six meat and potato products because they were made with two ingredients from McCain Foods, mushrooms and tomatoes, that were recalled for Salmonella and Listeria contamination, on October 18, 2018.

7-Eleven recalled their Bistro Southwest Style Salad with Bacon in two sizes on October 16, 2018. These products were shipped to retail locations in Texas. They have the establishment number “EST. 13553.”

GH Foods recalled salads made with the corn, including 365 by Whole Foods Market BBQ Chopped Salad, on October 17, 2018. These products have the establishment number “EST. P-39994”  and were shipped to retail locations in California.

Mary’s Harvest Fresh Foods recalled wrap and salad products made with the recalled corn on October 17, 2018. One of the products is Trader Jose’s Mexicali Inspired Salad with Chili Seasoned Chicken” sold at Trader Joe’s stores. Those foods have the establishment number “P-39928” or “40310-M.” They were shipped to Idaho, Oregon, and Washington.

GHSE is recalling ready to salad products made with the corn. That recall was issued on October 17, 2018. One of the recalled products is “Marketside” Fiesta Salad with Steak.” Those products have the establishment number “EST. 45781” and were shipped to Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina.

If you purchased any of these products, throw them away. Or you can return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

You should then clean out your fridge with a mild bleach solution, since Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures. Wash your hands well with soap and water after handling these products.

If you ate any of these foods, watch yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, muscle aches, and diarrhea. Pregnant women, the elderly, and young children are most likely to get seriously sick if they contract this infection.
