Fresh Express announces romaine recallFresh Express Incorporated is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of 9-ounce packages of leafy green romaine salad after a positive test for listeria.

The salad has an expired use-by date of Sept. 16, but the recall is a precaution in the event consumers may still have the product in their refrigerators, according to a news release from the Salinas, Calif., company.

The recalled salad product has a product code of I246A5BMG, found in the upper right corner of package, and was distributed primarily in the Midwest and Eastern part of the U.S. Because of the expiration date, the salad is no longer available in stores, according to a release.

The recall was triggered by a positive test result for Listeria monocytogenes on a single package, collected for the U. S. Department of Agriculture random sample testing program, according to the release. No illnesses have been reported in connection to the recall, according to the release.
