NY Gourmet Salads Inc. Recalls Chick Pea Salad Because of Possible Health Risk
NY GOURMET SALADS INC. of Brooklyn, NY, is recalling 60 lbs. of its 5 lb. tubs of CHICK PEA SALAD because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
