More than 90 tons of prepackaged salads and sandwiches by a California catering company are being recalled because a bacterial strain of E. coli has been linked to its products.
Some of the products, manufactured by Glass Onion Catering of Richmond were sold at Trader Joe’s stores. They included salads and sandwich wraps containing cooked chicken and ham produced between Sept. 23 and Nov. 6. The products were linked to illnesses in 26 people in three states.
A full list of products is available online at http://1.usa.gov/1agI9JV.
E. coli can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps two to eight days after exposure. Most people recover in a week, but some develop kidney failure.
