Announcement

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – ACH Food Companies, Inc. of Memphis, TN is recalling Durkee® Salad Topping, Food Club® branded Salad Topping and Hy-Vee® Garden Style Salad Topping because it has the potential to be contaminated with 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. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

ACH has received no reports of illness to date, but is taking this voluntary action as a precaution to ensure the health and safety of everyone who enjoys our products.

The recall is the result of the expanded recall of sunflower kernels supplied to us by SunOpta.

These products are distributed throughout the United States and the Dominican Republic through retail stores.
