A Kentucky manufacturer has issed a recall for its Garden Salads and Chef Salads due to a possible Salmonella contamination, according to recent news sources.

The salads subject to recall are the 6 oz Garden Salads and 5.6 oz Chef Salads, made by Thorntons, Inc. The products were distributed in Chicago, Ill, Cincinnati, OH, Columbus, OH, Indianapolis, IN, Evansville, IN, Lexington, KY and Nashville, TN by Greencore U.S.A.

The salads both come in black bowls with a clear plastic lid with the “use by” date of September 30, October 2, or October 3.

No illnesses have currently been reported in relation to this recall, but Salmonella can be a dangerous organism that causes life-threatening infection in some people. Especially at risk are the elderly, young children, and those with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of healthy people inclyde high fever, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.
