RECALL ALERT: Salads & Wraps Sold at Trader Joe's & Elsewhere
RICHMOND (AP) -- More than 90 tons of prepackaged salads and sandwiches by a California catering company are being recalled because a bacterial strain of E. coli has been linked to its products.
The USDA said yesterday that Glass Onion Catering in Richmond recalled the salads and sandwich wraps containing cooked chicken and ham after 26 people in three states were sickened with a strand of E. coli.
The Contra Costa Times reports the company has supplied food to Trader Joe's, Super Fresh Goods and Delish.
On its website, Trader Joes posted a message to customers:
