Product Recall: Fresh Express Salads

Product Recall: Fresh Express Salads

We would like to reassure our customers that Kirk Market has NOT been affected by the recent Fresh Express Salads recall, which was issued recently in the United States.

Fresh Express is recalling certain varieties of its branded and private label salad products produced at the company’s Streamwood, Illinois facility because the product has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. This organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Consumers with these symptoms should consult their health care provider.

The management of Kirk Market will continue to monitor this situation as the health and well being of our customers is our priority.
