RECALL! Caito Salads And Bowls

Caito Foods, an Indianapolis establishment, is recalling approximately 1,532 pounds of ready-to-eat salad and bowl products made with chicken that contain a corn ingredient that may be contaminated with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday.

The ready-to-eat salads and bowls made with chicken were produced from Oct. 6, 2018, through Oct. 14, 2018. The following products are subject to recall:

  • 11.5-oz. plastic clamshell packages containing "good & deLISH sante fe style salad with chicken," with "ENJOY BY" dates of 10/13/18 through 10/21/18 (inclusive).
  • 8.75-oz. plastic clamshell packages containing "Santa Fe Style Salad with Chicken," with "Sell By" date of 10/13/18 through 10/21/18 (inclusive).
  • 11.25-oz. plastic clamshell packages containing "FRESH Garden HIGHWAY SALADS SANTA FE STYLE SALAD WITH CHICKEN," with "Best If Sold By" dates of 10/12/18 through 10/20/18 (inclusive).
  • 12-oz. plastic bowl packages containing "good to go! Chipotle Chicken Bowl," with "Sell By" dates of 10/11/18 through 10/19/18 (inclusive).
  • 8.75-oz. plastic clamshell packages containing "FRESH Garden HIGHWAY Santa Fe Style Salad with Chicken," with "Best if Sold By" dates of 10/13/18 through 10/21/18 (inclusive).

The products subject to recall bear establishment number "P-39985" inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Missouri.

The problem was discovered on Oct, 14, 2018, when Caito Foods, LLC received notification that the corn used in the production of their ready-to-eat salad products was being recalled by their corn supplier due to Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella concerns.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts four to seven days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.

Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.

Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and persons with weakened immune systems. Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. Persons in the higher-risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek medical care and tell the health care provider about eating the contaminated food.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers' refrigerators. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact the Caito Foods Consumer Feedback Line at 1-844-467-7278. Members of the media with questions regarding the recall can contact Meredith Gremel, Caito Foods, LLC, at (616) 878-2830.
