The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Chicken Caesar Salad Kits are subject to this recall:
- 11-ounce clear plastic containers and 6.5-pound boxes labeled, “APPA Fine Foods/Sam’s Club Daily Chef Chicken Caesar Salad Kit” with case codes 141851, 141922, 141951, 141991, 142021, 142201 or 142131 with use by dates of 8/14/14, 8/21/14, 8/27/14, 9/1/14, 9/3/14 or 9/17/14.

According to the USDA, the recalled Chicken Caesar Salad Kits were shipped nationwide to one bulk warehouse chain for retail sale in its in-store cafés as APPA Fine Foods produced the kits used by the bulk warehouse chain.
Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development personnel informed the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (“FSIS”) it received two (2) confirmed positive Listeria monocytogenes results from retail product purchased at one (1) of the bulk warehouse chain locations. The bulk warehouse chain then sampled intact components of the Salad Kits. Only the Chicken variety came up positive with Listeria monocytogenes.
