Announcement

This is the updated press release to include distribution in Idaho and Montana.  There are no changes in products or codes.

Triple B Corporation of Seattle, Washington is voluntarily recalling salad kits and stir fry mixes due to possible contamination 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.

The broccoli used in processing these items has been recalled by our vendor Mann Packing of Salinas, California.

The following recalled salad kits and stir fry mixes were distributed in the states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana through retail store delis, hospitals, schools and hotels.
