E. coli outbreak prompts recall of salad sold at Wegmans, Target, other stores

More than 75,000 pounds of packaged salad sold at Wegmans, Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club and other stores nationwide is being recalled because the romaine lettuce it contains is thought to be connected to 17 E. coli infections in eight states, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Thursday.

Wegmans identified the products, made by New Jersey-based Missa Bay, as:

  • Ready Pac Bistro Sante Fe Style Salad with the UPC codes 0-21130-33671, 0-77745-29119, 0-77745-29188, 0-77745-29468 and a use-by date of Oct. 31.
  • Ready Pac Bistro Chicken Caesar Salad with the UPC codes 0-77745-29017, 0-77745-29186 and use-by dates of Oct. 30 and 31.
