March 17, 2007: Minnesota Company Recalls Potato Salad Due To Potential Listeria Contamination

Listeria Potato Salad Recall – In response to a Minnesota Department of Agriculture finding of possible Listeria contamination, Coborn’s DBC Foods of St. Cloud, Minnesota, has voluntarily recalled potato salad that it manufactured.

The contamination was found during a routine store inspection, according to Kevin Elfering, Director of the Dairy and Food Division of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. While the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes has been identified, its origin has not been determined.

The potato salad under suspicion was sold under the Midwest Pride, Coborn’s and Cash Wise labels in prepackaged, one-pound containers with lot number 7057018A. The expiration date for the Coborn’s and Cash Wise potato salads was March 9, while the expiration date for the Midwest Pride produce was April 2.

In addition, deli-packed containers with lot codes 7057018A and 7057026B were sold between February 27 and March 16 in 89 stores in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, and Nebraska.

To date, no illnesses resulting from Listeria contamination have been reported. Symptoms of the illness include fever, muscle aches, and, occasionally, nausea or diarrhea. If infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms such as headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions can occur. The disease affects primarily pregnant women, newborns, the elderly, and adults with weakened immune systems. Signs of illness typically appear from 3- 4 weeks following the consumption of contaminated food. However, symptoms can develop from one week to 90 days after exposure to Listeria.
