E. Coli Traced to Richmond's Glass Onion Catering



    Over 180,000 pounds of salad and wrap products are being recalled by Glass Onion Catering in Richmond. Christie Smith reports. (Published Monday, Nov. 11, 2013)

    Richmond-based Glass Onion Catering is in the process of recalling approximately 181,620 pounds of salads and sandwich-wrap products with fully-cooked chicken and ham which could be contaminated with E. coli, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Sunday.

    The products were produced between Sept. 23 and Nov. 6 and shipped to eight states, mostly on the West Coast. A full list of retail distributors can be found at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

    The company makes several kinds of salads distributed by Trader Joe's.

    If you shop at Trader Joe’s, check your fridge for:

    • "Delish" white chicken club wrap,
    • "Delish" grilled chicken Caesar wrap,
    • Trader Joe's field fresh chopped salad with grilled chicken,
    • and Trader Jose's Mexicali salad with chili lime chicken.

    Illnesses began on Sept. 29 according to the FSIS and as many of 15 cases of E. coli can be traced to people who had eaten ready-to-eat salads before showing symptoms. It is unclear where those cases occurred.

    Consumers worried about E. coli can go to AskKaren.gov for more information. More information can be found by calling 1-888-674-6854 between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. PST.
