Thorntons recalls salads due to Salmonella
Oct. 3, 2011
LOUISVILLE, KY. — Thorntons, Inc. is recalling 6-oz Garden Salads and 5.6-oz Chef Salads due to Salmonella concerns.
The products in question were manufactured and distributed by Greencore U.S.A. to stores in Chicago, Ill.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; Indianapolis, Ind.; Evansville, Ind.; Lexington, Ky.; and Nashville, Tenn. The product comes with a black bowl and clear lid with expiration dates of 9/30/2011, 10/2/2011 and 10/3/2011.
So far no illnesses have been reported, but the concern is the grape tomatoes in the product came from a lot that contained Salmonella.
This recall adds to concerns for the produce aisle following the mid-September recall of cantaloupe from Jensen Farms due to Listeria contamination that has been linked to 15 deaths and 84 illnesses. The Food and Drug Administration is working to determine how the cantaloupe became contaminated.
