Just after the CDC announced a multi-state E.coli outbreak that is very likely linked to romaine lettuce, Missa Bay LLC., a New Jersey-based company, recalled more than 97,000 pounds of salad bowls for potential contamination of the lettuce ingredient with E.coli O157:H7. The recall notice posted by the USDA includes 97,272 pounds of salad products that contain meat or poultry. The recalled salad bowls were produced between October 14-16th with the establishment number “EST. 18502B” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were shipped to distribution locations in 22 states (AL, CT, FL, GA, IL, IN, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, NJ, NY, NC, OH, PA, SC, VA, WI).
The full list of recalled products published by the USDA includes salads sold at the following stores…
- Walmart (Marketside)
- Sam’s Club (Sam’s ABF)
- Albertsons/Safeway/Vons (Signature Farms, Signature Café)
- Giant Eagle (GE)
- Side salads ordered from Domino’s Pizza
E.coli Outbreak Investigation
Our national E.coli lawyers have been investigating a multi-state E.coli outbreak that has sickened at least 17 people, including two Maryland residents who ate Ready Pac Bistro Bowl Chicken Caesar Salads that came from the same lot as the recalled Missa Bay salad products. After collecting and testing an unopened package of the Ready Pac Chicken Caesar Salad bowl from a sick patient’s home, the Maryland Department of Health found E.coli O157:H7 in the lettuce. The USDA says that all products included in the same lot of lettuce have been included in the recall.
Pritzker Hageman food safety law firm has been retained by multiple victims in the ongoing E.coli outbreak that is most likely linked to romaine lettuce, including one victim with hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). Our lawyers have represented clients in nearly every major E.coli outbreak in the U.S. for the last 20 years. We have won millions of dollars for our clients, including a $7.5 million recovery for a family whose daughter contracted an E.coli-HUS infection, in what is believed to be the largest E.coli verdict in U.S. history.
