GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A California food producer is recalling more than 92,000 pounds of chicken Caesar salad kits due to listeria concerns.
APPA Fine Foods out of Corona, Calif. is recalling 92,657 pounds of APPA Fine Foods/Sam’s Club Daily Chef Chicken Caesar Salad Kits, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The affected 11 oz. clear containers and 6.5-pound boxes of the food were shipped nationwide, the USDA says.
The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service was alerted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture that it had received two reports of listeria monocytogenes earlier this month.
The chicken in the salad later tested positive for listeria, which can cause a dangerous flu-like illness.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture issued a public health alert about the salad kits earlier this month and said they should be thrown out.
