Packaged salads might seem like a good, fast way to get a serving of vegetables in without a lot of work, but this weekend a potential listeria contamination has sparked a massive recall of more than 90,000 pounds of packaged chicken Caesar salad from Sam’s Club stores throughout the country.
According to Foodbeast, over 92,000 pounds of Sam’s Club Daily Chef Chicken Caesar Salads packaged kits have been recalled by their producer, APAA Fine Foods, over concerns that the DIY salad kits may have been exposed to listeria bacteria. Luckily, nobody has yet shown any symptoms of illness, but the salads have been recalled as a precautionary measure. The greens and dressing were reportedly safe, but the cooked chicken in the packages was potentially contaminated by bacteria.
The recalled salads were packaged in 11-ounce plastic containers and sold together in 6.5-pound boxes nationwide. Affected kits should be returned or disposed of.
