PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Reser's Fine Foods in Beaverton has announced a recall of about 109,000 cases of refrigerated prepared salads and other ready-to-eat foods over listeria contamination.
The Oregonian reported Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1h9tjJ3) that the items were produced at the company's Topeka, Kan., plant and were distributed across the country and in Canada.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the listeria was detected through microbiological testing by Canadian health authorities.
They worked with U.S. officials, tracing the contamination to the Kansas plant. The company indicated in a recall notice that the FDA found listeria in the plant and the possibility for the items to become cross-contaminated.
