Whole Foods Recalls 230 Pounds of Chicken and Pasta Salads

A sample tested positive for listeria.



Attention, Whole Foods shoppers: The supermarket chain has issued a recall of more than 230 pounds of prepared chicken and pasta salads over concerns of possible listeria contamination. 

The affected salads — Curry Chicken Salad and Classic Deli Pasta Salad — were distributed locally in New Jersey; food purchased at Pennsylvania Whole Foods locations is not included in the recall. Per a press release on the FDA’s site:

The salads were sold prepackaged, in salad bars, in store’s chef’s cases and in sandwiches and wraps prepared in the stores. The effected products were sold in stores between October 18 and October 22, 2015 and have a “sell by” date of October 23, 2015.

As of now, no illnesses have been reported. A sample of the salads tested positive during a routine test. A full list of affected products and UPC codes can be found here.

Customers with affected products are instructed to throw them away and bring a receipt to a Whole Foods location for a refund.
