Possible E. Coli Outbreak in Trader Joe’s, Delish Salads and Sandwiches


Quick, check the date on your sad desk lunch. Salads and sandwich wraps packaged by a California catering company between September 23 and November 6 have officially been recalled due to E. coli contamination.

The Glass Onion Catering Company in Richmond, Calif. supplies foods for several large retailers, including Trader Joe’s, Super Fresh Foods, and Delish, according to Contra Costa Times. The contaminated products, which contained cooked chicken and ham, where shipped to locations in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, and Texas.

According to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service. the bacteria causes dehydration, bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and possibly even liver failure.

Moral of the story? Make your own damn sandwiches.

Yeah, I never buy premixed salads or premade sandwiches. Well, not unless it’s from a restaurant. I doubt it makes much of a difference, but premade sammiches from gas stations or grocery stores? Forget it.

Oh jeez. I just finished a TJ’s Cobb Salad (pull date: 11/15) and I sit down @ the computer and read this… What’s the worst that can happen? Shoulda had a McRib!
