E. coli outbreak spurs recall: Toss out these salads, sandwich wraps


A recent outbreak of E. coli, which has sickened at least 26 people in three states, has been linked to a Richmond, Calif., catering company and officials are asking anyone who bought the company’s salads and wraps to toss them out.

Athertone Foods Inc. distributed the products to Trader Joe’s, Walgreens and Whole Foods in eight states including California, Arizona and New Mexico.

The recall affects about 90 tons of prewrapped salads and wraps, all made with cooked ham or chicken. They are labeled as Delish Greek Style Orzo Salad, Delish Asian Style Noodle Salad, Delish Vegetarian Wrap, Classic Greek Salad, Southwestern Salad Kit and Wheat Berry Salad Kit.

Symptoms, including abdominal cramps and diarrhea, appear two to eight days after exposure.

The meals were also sold in Texas, Washington, Oregon, Nevada and Utah.
