Reser’s Fine Foods Recalls More Products for Possible Listeria Contamination

This article was updated to include an expanded list of recalled products issued Oct. 26, 2013.

The Reser’s Fine Foods recall of refrigerated ready-to-eat products announced Oct. 22 was expanded on Saturday, Oct. 26, to include all products produced between Sept. 5 and Oct. 9, 2013, due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.  The packages of such foods as pasta, cole slaw, and potato salad subject to recall are marked with a Use-by-Date or Best By Date and followed by a plant identifier code of 20.

The company announced that these products are being recalled in conjunction with other foods regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Products regulated by FSIS bear the establishment number “EST. 13520” or “P-13520” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The recalled products were sold nationwide and in Canada, to both retail and food service establishments.

The problem was found through testing conducted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. There have been no reports of illness due to the consumption of these products.

An updated list of recalled products is available on the FSIS website.

    The message on the telephone says not to eat it but what happens if you had some two weeks ago?… a little late to say not to eat it…

    This is not true, i have reported my case to this company about my severe illness i came down with this week, that i was medically treated for, i prey no one has to go through what i have had to. Never eating potato salad again.

    OK so now what do you do if you bought this and you got sick.

    Look they make a good product…..all it takes is one lazy employee to not follow proper procedure and cross contamination can occur. ATLEAST they didn’t try and cover it up like the peanut executives did…….

  • That doesn’t make me keen to eat potato salad.

    I called the Reser’s recall hotline and they refused to give me ANY recall information without me providing them with my personal information first! What are they going to do with my info? And why did they insist on getting the info.? I told them if they’ll give me their personal info., I’ll give them mine. Of course, the answer is an obvious NO…

    I can’t believe this company! They will assume absolutely no responsibility for their tainted, recalled product! Geri at Chubb Insurance makes that abundantly clear. If you ate their product and had symptoms, don’t plan on them refunding your money or paying for your blood test. Geri told me that I would have to give them a signed medical authorization for them to even consider paying. I still have leftover product in my fridge which doesn’t expire till January. Geri told me to put it in my freezer. Gee…will that erase the evidence? What a couple of systems! Resers and Chubb seem to be cut from the same cloth.
