Broccoli Salad Kits Recalled by Taylor Farms


WebMD News from HealthDay

More than 5,000 pounds of broccoli salad kit products are being recalled by Taylor Farms because they contain salad dressing that may be contaminated with Listeria, the U.S. Department of Agriculture says.

The kits were shipped to distributors and delis for sale to consumers in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Vermont, CNN reported.

The recalled products are boxes labeled "TAYLOR FARMS BROCCOLI CRUNCH WITH BACON AND DRESSING," with the case codes 310151 or 310153. They were produced on October 21, 22 and 23, and bear the establishment number EST. 34522 inside the USDA mark of inspection, the USDA said.

Listeria bacteria can cause a serious infection called listeriosis, which typically affects pregnant women, older adults, infants, and adults with weakened immune systems, CNN reported. The USDA said there have been no reports of illnesses associated with the recalled products.
