RICHMOND, Calif. (November 11, 2013) A recall has been issued for more than 90 tons of prepackaged salads and sandwiches by a California catering company because a bacterial strain of E. coli has been linked to its products.
The products were produced between Sept. 23 and Nov. 6, and were shipped to distribution centers in Texas as well as California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says Richmond, Calif.-based Glass Onion Catering recalled the salads and sandwich wraps containing cooked chicken and ham after 26 people in three states were sickened with a strand of E. coli.
The company has supplied food to Trader Joe's, Super Fresh Goods and Delish.
The FSIS says the bacteria can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps.
