Nationwide recall for Marketside Bacon Ranch Crunch Salad Kits over Listeria risk


Share post:

Taylor Fresh Foods has issued a recall for its Marketside Bacon Ranch Crunch Salad Kits after discovering a potential risk of Listeria contamination in the cheese packets included in the kits. This action is part of a broader recall initiative by Rizo-López Foods, Inc., which has called back dairy products across multiple brands due to concerns over Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterium responsible for causing listeriosis, a serious infection.

Product Details and Affected Areas

The specific product under recall is the Marketside Bacon Ranch Crunch Chopped Salad Kit, weighing 12.76 oz, identified by UPC 681131305440. Consumers are advised to check for a “BEST If Used By” date of on or before February 21, 2024. These kits have been distributed across a wide range of states, being available in Walmart stores located in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Washington D.C., Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Taylor Fresh Foods has taken immediate steps to ensure the removal of the affected salad kits from retail shelves and has urged consumers in possession of these products to dispose of them promptly. Refunds for the recalled salad kits can be obtained at the place of purchase.

Health Risks and Consumer Advisory

Listeria monocytogenes poses a significant health risk, particularly to vulnerable groups such as young children, the elderly, and individuals with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of listeriosis include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. It’s especially dangerous for pregnant women, as it can lead to miscarriages and stillbirths.

Customers who have consumed the recalled product or exhibit symptoms of listeriosis are encouraged to seek medical attention. For further information or queries about the recall, Taylor Fresh Foods has provided a customer care hotline available from Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST, at 855-455-0098.
