BEAVERTON, Ore. — A Food and Drug Administration spokeswoman says a recall of packaged salads, produced at its plant in Kansas, was prompted by a routine check of products sold in Canada.
FDA spokeswoman Juli Ann Putnam said Tuesday that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency found Listeria monocytogenes in some ready-to-eat macaroni and cheese and Reser’s did a voluntary recall.
Putnam says a follow-up inspection of the plant by the Food and Drug Administration and the state of Kansas determined there was a potential for cross-contamination with other products, so the recall was expanded.
