CLEVELAND - River Ranch Fresh Foods has expanded its salad recall to Ohio grocery stores that carry the brand Farmers Market because of possible Listeria contamination.
To date, there have been no reported cases of the illness.
Giant Eagle immediately took the bagged salad off its store shelves and is in the process of contacting customers who previously bought it.
Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems.Symptoms include: high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
The recalled salad bags have either "Best By" code dates between 12MAY2012 - 29MAY2012 or Julian dates of 118 and 125. The code date is typically located in the upper right hand corner of the bags.
If you bought the bagged salad, return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Consumers with questions can contact River Ranch at their 24-hour customer service center at 1-888-624-2569 or 1-800-762-7708.
