Northern Tier Bakery recalls ready-to-eat salad products
On Friday, Northern Tier Bakery, LLC of St. Paul Park, Minn. announced it is recalling approximately 905 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) salad products. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) the salad products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The RTE salad items were produced from May 18, 2022, through June 8, 2022. The recall includes:
4-oz. plastic packages of “SUPERMOM’S KITCHEN Chef Salad EGG, WHITE TURKEY MEAT, HAM, MONTEREY JACK & CHEDDAR CHEESE WITH CRISP ROMAINE & GREEN LEAF LETTUCE” with “ENJOY THROUGH” dates of 6/9 and 6/11 represented on the label.
4.3-oz. plastic packages of “SUPERMOM’S KITCHEN Caesar Salad SEASONED CHICKEN BREAST STRIPS, PARMESAN CHEESE & CROUTON PACKET WITH CRISP ROMAINE & GREEN LEAF LETTUCE” with “ENJOY THROUGH” dates of 5/26, 5/28, 5/31, 6/2, 6/4, 6/8, 6/9, 6/11, 6/14 and 6/16 represented on the label.
FSIS lists the products for recall with establishment number “EST. 19860” inside the USDA mark of inspection. They say these items were shipped to retail locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers’ refrigerators. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
Eating food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.
As of June 9, 2022, there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions by consumers. The company says the problem was discovered when they did a product sampling. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
