Bagged salad blends sold at Fred Meyer, QFC are recalled

A California company that sells bagged salad blends is voluntarily recalling various salad products sold at Fred Meyer and QFC stores in Washington state and elsewhere in the country after a random test found salmonella on a package of the produce.

Fred Meyer and QFC say customers should throw out the following items with a sell-by date of 10/18/11:

FRESH SELECTIONS FIELD GREENS SALAD, 8 OZ.
FRESH SELECTIONS LEAFY ROMAINE, 10 OZ.
FRESH SELECTIONS ROMAINE SALAD BLEND, 10 OZ.
FRESH SELECTIONS HEARTS OF ROMAINE, 10 OZ.

Opened or unopened packages of salad included in the recall should not be consumed and should be returned to your local Fred Meyer or QFC store for a refund or a replacement, according to a Fred Meyer/QFC news release.

Taylor Farms, which supplies the salad blends, announced the recall after a sample tested positive for salmonella by the state of Washington Department of Agriculture.

Consumers who have questions about the recall may contact Fred Meyer/QFC toll free at 1-800-KROGERS (800-576-4377) or may contact Taylor Farms consumer relations toll free at 1-877-323-7374.
