Recall affects some City Market deli broccoli salads, coleslaw

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- The Food and Drug Administration said King Soopers and City Market grocery stores are recalling deli broccoli salads and coleslaw for a possible listeria contamination.

The FDA said there have been no reports of illnesses so far.

The salads and coleslaw are sold from the service case in the deli at City Market and King Soopers. The stores have reportedly removed the items from store shelves and have notified customers.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections in young children or the elderly. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, a listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

On Oct. 20, Journey Cuisine, that manufacturer notified City Market and King Soopers that the recalled product contains an ingredient from Mann Packing that may have been contaminated with listeria, according to the FDA.

Anyone with questions should call 1-800-KROGERS.
