Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following health alert is from the FDA on September 22, 2012 and FDA on Sept 27, 2012 .

Fresh Express Incorporated is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of 9 oz. Leafy Green Romaine Salad with the expired Use-by Date of September 16 and September 26, 2012 and Product Code H256808 as a precaution in an unlikely event that consumers may still have the expired salad in their refrigerators. The recall was necessitated by a positive test result for Listeria monocytogenes on a single package out of many samples collected for the U. S. Department of Agriculture random sample testing program.
Because it is beyond the expiration date, the salad is no longer available for sale in stores. No illnesses are reported in association with the product recall. No consumer complaints have been received about the salad. No other Fresh Express products are being recalled.
In an unlikely event consumers may still have this particular salad – now well beyond its Use-by Date and expected usability – in their refrigerators, they should not eat it and throw it out. Consumers with questions may call the Fresh Express Consumer Response Center at (800) 242-5472 during the hours of 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Recalled salad details are:

  • Product: Fresh Express Leafy Green Romaine Salad in a 9 oz. package
  • Use-by Date: September 16 (located in upper right hand corner of package)
  • Product Code: I246A5BMG (located in upper right hand corner of package)
  • Distribution: Primarily Midwest and Eastern states of the U.S.
According to Fresh Express instructions and retail store procedures, expired salads are removed from store shelves.

(No other Fresh Express Salads are included in this recall)
