BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) — A U.S. Food and Drug Administration spokeswoman says a Reser's Fine Foods Inc. recall of packaged salads produced at its Topeka, Kan., plant was prompted by a routine check of products sold in Canada.
FDA spokeswoman Juli Ann Putnam said Tuesday that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency found Listeria monocytogenes (mon-oh-SYT'-oh-jeens) in some ready-to-eat Cheesy Macaroni salad and Reser's issued a voluntary recall of affected products.
Putnam says a follow-up inspection of the plant by the FDA and the state of Kansas determined there was a potential for cross-contamination with other products, so the recall was expanded.
In all, some 450 products sold under the name of Beaverton-based Reser's and others were recalled.
Listeria can produce fever, headache, diarrhea and abdominal pain, and can be fatal for people with weak immune systems.
