Lansal Inc. (doing business as Hot Mama’s Foods) announced Sunday that it is voluntarily recalling 304 containers (approximately 114 pounds) of Trader Joe’s Egg White Salad with Chives packaged in 6-ounce plastic containers due to concerns about possible Listeria monocytogenes. The recalled Egg White Salad with Chives was distributed to Trader Joe’s grocery stores in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin. The voluntary recall applies to product in a 6-ounce plastic container with UPC # 00666695 and a SELL BY Date of JUN 10, 2014, stamped on the edge of the lid. The potential for contamination was found during routine testing by the company. No illnesses have been reported. Lansal has contacted the retailer and distributors, instructing them to remove all affected product from sale, and the company is working with the appropriate agencies, including state Departments of Health, the Food and Drug Administration and local authorities. Consumers who have purchased the above product with that UPC code and sell-by date are urged not to eat it and to dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with any questions may call toll-free (877) 877-907-7508 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (CDT) seven days a week. Lansal announced May 19 that it was recalling 14,860 pounds of hummus and dip products, also due to concerns about potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination. Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
