AUSTIN (KXAN) — Over the past week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has sent recall alerts for products from salads to meats because of possible salmonella and listeria contamination in corn, onions and other vegetables.
On Oct. 16, the first recall came from Prime Deli Corporation, based out of Lewisville, Texas, for about 217 pounds of ready-to-eat salad that had concerning corn inside. Since then, the recall has affected salads from Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, as well as meat dishes.
Health officials are concerned some items may still be in people's refrigerators. So far, no one has gotten sick from the items.
Anyone who eats salmonella-contaminated food can get diarrhea, cramps and fever, which usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Listeriosis, on the other hand, can be a serious infection that may also have gastrointestinal symptoms, but also causes fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions.
Below is a list of the recalls with links to the announcements.
