Garden Fresh expands recall due to Listeria risk

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Garden-Fresh Foods is initiating an expansion to their September voluntary recall on various ready-to-eat salads, slaw, and dip products sold under various brands and code dates.

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.

Consumers who have purchased any of the suspect products are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Currently there has been no illness or complaints related to this recall.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-645-3367 Monday through Friday between the hours 8:00AM- 4:30 PM
