(Undated) – Ready-to-eat salad and dips sold at Greater Cleveland Target stores is part of a multi-state recall of ready-to-eat salads, slaw and dip product sold under various brands and code dates.
The US Food and Drug Administration says the products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes-fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Some Market Pantry and Archer Farms products sold at Target are included. The recall is conducted by the maker of the salads, Garden-Fresh Foods.
