FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – June 10, 2015 – Chicago, Ill – A Wisconsin firm is voluntarily recalling its potato salad, due to the possibility of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The product was distributed to Jewel stores in the Chicago area and may have been sold at delicatessen counters between May 30 and June 9 under the brand name Garden Fresh Steakhouse Potato Salad. Jewel was notified by Garden-Fresh Foods of the possibility of Listeria monocytogenes contamination and, in an abundance of caution, voluntarily removed and destroyed any possibly affected product. The problem was identified through internal testing at Garden-Fresh as part of its robust testing protocols. No other Garden-Fresh products and no other Potato Salad sold in the delis at Jewel are involved in this recall.

There are no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the recalled product.

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. The organism can also cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Consumers who have purchased Garden Fresh Steakhouse Potato Salad at Jewel are urged to dispose of the product immediately or return to their local store for a refund. Consumers with questions may contact Garden-Fresh Foods via email at information@garden-freshfoods.com or call 1-414-204-4611 MON-FRI from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. central time.

This recall is being made in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration.
