Dept of Agriculture: 90 Tons of Prepackaged Salads, Sandwiches Recalled Over Possible E. Coli Contamination

A bacterial strain of E. coli linked to a California company has forced the recall of more than 90 tons of prepackaged salads and sandwiches, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.

Glass Onion Catering in Richmond, Calif., is recalling approximately 181,620 pounds of ready-to-eat salads and sandwich-wrap products with fully cooked chicken and ham that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the department's Food Safety and Inspection Service said. The products have been linked to 26 ill patients in three states, the USDA said.
