90 Tons of Salad and Wraps Recalled for Possible E. Coli Contamination


Washington, DC: Athertone Foods, Inc. of Richmond, CA, is voluntary recalling "Best Buy"dates 9-23-13 through 11-14-13 of ready to eat salads and wraps because of the potential for food poisoning: the products may be contaminated with Escherichia coli O157:H7 bacteria (E. coli O157:H7). Reports indicate 26 people in three states have become ill from the bacteria.

In total, some 90 tons of food products are being recalled. The affected products were produced between September 23 and November 6, 2013, and were shipped to distribution centers in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington. Some of the retailers that sell the products are Trader Joe', Super Fresh Goods and Delish.

E. coli O157:H7 causes a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death. To date, no illnesses have been associated with these products.
