READ ON THIS IS LOCAL!! – Broccoli salad recalled for possible Listeria

Your broccoli salad may be tainted

Taylor Farms has recalled more than 5,000 pounds of broccoli salad kit products because of possible Listeria contamination, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.

The kits were shipped to distributors and delis for consumer purchase in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Vermont. They contain dressing in packets that are the subject of a Food and Drug Administration recall.

Last week, Listeria concerns prompted Reser’s Fine Foods to recall some 109,000 cases of refrigerated ready-to-eat products.

Taylor Farms informed the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service that kits contained salad dressing subject to that recall.

There have been no reports of illnesses.
