Giant Food stores have announced that they have stopped the selling of their Own Brand Salads Homestyle Pasta & Mozzarella Salad, Roasted Corn & Edamame Salad, and Firecracker Slaw due to Salmonella.

According to the company, the voluntary recall came after the recall made by ASK foods due to the vegetable ingredient supplied by McCain Foods potentially being contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The following products are included in this recall:

• Own Brand Homestyle Pasta & Mozzarella Salad (Located in Deli)

• Own Brand Roasted Corn & Edamame Salad (Located on Salad Bar)

• Own Brand Firecracker Slaw (Located on Salad Bar)

Giant has received no reports of consumer illnesses to date.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. And the consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. 

Customers who have purchased this product should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to Giant for a full refund.  

If you have any questions regarding this recall, consumers may call Giant Food Customer Service at 888-469-4426 for more information or visit the Giant Food website at www.giantfood.com.
