NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced on Thursday that they are recalling almost 100,000 pounds of salad products by Missa Bay, a New Jersey-based company over fears that lettuce ingredient in salads that contain meat or poultry may be contaminated with E. coli

The salad products items were produced from October 14, through October 16, and were shipped to distribution locations in areas including New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut.

As part of a foodborne illness outbreak investigation, the Maryland Department of Health collected an unopened package of Ready Pac Bistro Chicken Raised Without Antibiotics Caesar Salad and tested individual ingredients in the salad and the lettuce tested positive for E. coli.

All products from the same lot of lettuce are included in the recall.  

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to throw the products away or return to the place of purchase, and not to consume them.
