Zupan's Markets Initiates Voluntary Recall of Macaroni Salad With Cheddar Cheese Because of Possible Health Risk

For Immediate Release

June 16, 2016



Duck Delivery Produce Inc.


Portland, Ore. – Zupan's Markets is initiating a voluntary recall of its Macaroni Salad with Cheddar Cheese 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.

There have been no reported illnesses attributed to the recalled items to date.

Zupan's Markets is issuing this voluntary recall after being notified by their supplier, National Frozen Foods, that the frozen green peas used in the product are being recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled Macaroni Cheddar Cheese Salad is packaged in a plastic bag, 5 lb. net weight. The label listed item #23070 and the UPC 8 87241 80712 0.

The recalled product was distributed to four Zupan's Markets locations in Portland and Lake Oswego, Oregon between 04/09/16 and 06/14/16.

The product was sold both in Zupan's Markets service deli salad case, sized to order, and available in prepacked round plastic containers (8, 12 & 16 oz.) in its Grab & Go area. Scale label on bottom of the product container reads Macaroni Salad with Cheddar Cheese with code 394.

Anyone who has the recalled product in their possession should not consume it and should destroy or discard it. Consumers can return to Zupan's Markets for a full refund. Questions can be directed to Duck Delivery Produce Inc. at 503-288-9380 Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Pacific Time).

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration.
