Richmond Company Recalls Prepackaged Salad, Sandwiches

RICHMOND (CBS/AP) — More than 90 tons of prepackaged salads and sandwiches by a Bay Area catering company are being recalled because a bacterial strain of E. coli has been linked to its products.

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says Sunday that Richmond-based Glass Onion Catering recalled the salads and sandwich wraps containing cooked chicken and ham after 26 people in three states were sickened with a strand of E. coli.

The products were produced between Sept. 23 and Nov. 6, and were shipped to distribution centers in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Texas.

The Contra Costa Times reports the company has supplied food to Trader Joe’s, Super Fresh Goods and Delish.

The FSIS says the bacteria can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps.
