Prime Deli Corp., a unit of Japanese meat processor Prima Meat Packers Ltd., has issued a recall of approximately 217 pounds of ready-to-eat salad with bacon products due to the potential presence of salmonella and listeria.
According to an Oct. 16 notice from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, the recall affects 11.2-ounce and 9.6-ounce packages of 7-Eleven Bistro Southwest Style Salad with Bacon with best by date of Oct. 16 and establishment number 13553.
The products were distributed to retail outlets in Texas.
The health regulator said that the recall was triggered after Prime Deli received notification that the corn used in the production of the salad was being recalled by its supplier due to concerns of listeria and salmonella.
Food contaminated with salmonella may cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever, while listeria's symptoms are fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions, along with other gastrointestinal symptoms, the federal department said.
The agency said there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions linked to the consumption of the salads.
Customers who purchased the products are urged not to consume them and dispose of the items or return them to the place of purchase.
7-Eleven is a unit of Japanese convenience store giant Seven & i Holdings Co. Ltd.
