FDA orders recall of lettuce kits due to possible listeria contamination

INDIANA – Fresh Express Incorporated is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of three varieties of already-expired branded and private-label salad kit products produced at the company’s Morrow, Georgia facility out of an abundance of caution due to a possible health risk from Listeria monocytogenes.

The recall was initiated when it was learned a random sample test of a single salad kit with a Use-By Date of March 31, 2023, collected by the Georgia Department of Agriculture yielded a positive result for the Listeria pathogen.

The FDA is concerned that some products may still be in consumers’ refrigerators.

To obtain a refund or for more information, consumers may call the Fresh Express Consumer Response Center at (800) 242-5472 between the hours of 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Time. Refunds are also available where purchased.

More information on the recall can be found on the FDA website.
