FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - May 22, 2012 - Pacific Coast Fruit Company, Portland, Oregon is voluntarily recalling multiple types of bagged processed salads based on the potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
