More than 97K pounds of salad products recalled over potential E. coli contamination

TAMPA, Fla. — Missa Bay, LLC, is recalling approximately 97,272 pounds of salad products because the lettuce might be contaminated with E. coli.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS), the products were from October 14 through October 16 and sold in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The products have the establishment number "EST. 18502B" inside the USDA mark of inspection. Specific product information can be found on this spreadsheet.

FSIS lists this recall as a high health risk, meaning "there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences," according to the recall.

The recall comes after the Maryland Department of Health collected an unopened package of the product, and the lettuce tested positive for E. coli. All products from the same lot of lettuce are included in the recall.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in distribution centers, restaurants, or institutional refrigerators or freezers.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Mary Toscano, Consumer Affairs Manager for Bonduelle at 1-800-800-7822.
