A Wisconsin-based food company is issuing a voluntary recall on many different products due to a possible Listeria outbreak. The items include ready-to-eat salads, slaw and dip products sold under various brands.

Garden-Fresh Foods warns the produce may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious or sometimes-fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people.

Symptoms of the bacterial disease are high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Products are sold in various size containers (6oz to 18oz packages). The products were distributed in the following states:

WI, MN, IA, IL, OH, IN, TX, FL, MA, MO, MI, PA, AZ, CA, and distributed to retail stores and food services.  

 Consumers who have purchased any of the suspect products are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Currently there has been no illness or complaints related to this recall.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-645-3367 Monday through Friday between the hours 8:00AM- 4:30 PM.
