What’s the problem?
Prime Deli Corporation in Lewisville received notification that the corn used in the production of their Southwest Style Salad with Bacon was being recalled by their supplier over potential contamination with salmonella and listeria.
Specific products affected by the recall include:
- 11.2-oz. clear plastic clamshell packages containing “7-ELEVEN™ BISTRO SOUTHWEST STYLE SALAD WITH BACON” and best by date of “Tuesday 1016”.
- 9.6-oz. clear plastic clamshell packages containing “7-ELEVEN™ BISTRO SOUTHWEST STYLE SALAD WITH BACON” and best by date of “Tuesday 1016”.
The ready-to-eat salads with bacon were produced on October 13, FSIS said. Affected products bear the establishment number “EST. 13553” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
Salmonella causes serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. It is generally contracted from contaminated poultry, meat, eggs and water, and affects the intestinal tract.
Signs and symptoms of a salmonella infection include:
- Abdominal pain
If you purchased any of the salads listed above, you should not eat them, and either throw them away or return them to 7-11 for a refund. Anyone concerned about a salmonella illness should call their doctor immediately.
