California Company Recalls Bagged Salad Blends

SALINAS, Calif. (AP) — Taylor Farms Retail Inc. is voluntarily recalling 3,265 cases of various bagged salad blends that have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

The Salinas, Calif., company said Wednesday that its action comes after the Washington state Agriculture Department conducted a random test on a finished package of spinach.

No illnesses have been reported.

The bagged salad products include those with “best by” dates ranging from Oct. 18 to 21. They were marketed under the brand names Fresh Selections, HEB, Marketside and Taylor Farms.

The items were distributed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Puerto Rico and sold in various retail supermarkets.

Consumers can call 1-877-323-7374 for more information.

    Great. I just ate an entire 12 ounce bag of their Fresh Select Veggie Lover’s blend. Place of origin on the label? Salinas, CA. Expiration date? Oct 21. Well, at least I had it with my Makoto dressing. Love that stuff.

      There are quite a few of these companies in Salinas. The one I purchased is not the one in question. WHEW!
