Bagged salads recalled amid salmonella concerns


Taylor Farms Retail of California, a producer of bagged salad leaves, issued a voluntary recall of 3,265 cases of salads after a random test revealed one contaminated with salmonella. The Food and Drug administration announced that there have been no reported illnesses from the recalled items. States where the products were distributed include Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, North Caroline, Oregon, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington and Puerto Rico.

Brands affected by the recall include Fresh Selections, H-E-B, Marketside and Taylor Farms, with the “best by” dates between October 18 and 21. The FDA says salmonella is most dangerous for those with compromised immune systems, children and elderly. Symptoms in healthy people consist of fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
