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.
