In Minnesota, the Fresh Express salad Listeria recall includes Marketside, All Fresh, Simply Nature, Little Salad Bar, and Fresh Express brand salads sold at ALDI, Lund’s, and Walmart stores. Consumers who have purchased these products should not eat them as Listeria can cause serious illness and death. Among pregnant women, Listeria can cause miscarriage and stillbirth.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). are investigating a Listeria outbreak associated with these salads. Since 2016, the CDC has identified at least 10 illnesses associated with the strain of Listeria monocytogenes that was found by Michigan health officials in a Fresh Express salad. One death has been reported.

Consumers who have eaten a salad included in this recall should monitor themselves for symptoms of a Listeria infection. These symptoms, which can take as long as 70 days to develop, include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, muscle stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.

Fresh Express Listeria Recall

Fresh Express Recall

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) issued a consumer advisory for Fresh Express Sweet Hearts Romaine Lettuce Sweet Butter Lettuce on December 17, 2021, after a sample tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.  Three days later, Fresh Express issued a Listeria recall for all of the salad made at the company’s facility in Streamwood, IL. The recalled salads have product codes Z324 through Z350.

In Minnesota, stores included in the recall are Lund’s, ALDI and Walmart. One Lund’s store posted a sign in the salad section that stated all of the Fresh Express salad supplied to the store was produced at the Fresh Express facility in Streamwood, IL.
