Chicago Area: Potato Salad Recalled Over Listeria Worry

This is my favorite potato salad, well not anymore!

Garden-Fresh Foods Inc. of Milwaukee, WI, is recalling its potato salad due to the possibility of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.


The product was distributed to Jewel stores in the Chicago area and may have been sold at delicatessen counters between May 30 and June 9 under the brand name Garden Fresh Steakhouse Potato Salad.

Jewel was notified by Garden-Fresh Foods of the possibility of Listeria monocytogenescontamination and has removed and destroyed any possibly affected product.

The problem was identified through internal testing at Garden-Fresh. No other Garden-Fresh products and no other potato salad sold in the delis at Jewel stores are involved in this recall.

There are no reported illnesses to date associated with the consumption of the recalled product.

Consumers who have purchased Garden Fresh Steakhouse Potato Salad at Jewel are urged to dispose of the product immediately or return to their local store for a refund. Consumers with questions may contact Garden-Fresh Foods via email or call (414) 204-4611, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CDT.

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. The organism can also cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
