(WXYZ) - Milwaukee-based Garden-Fresh Foods Inc. has recalled several varieties of prepared foods -- including salads, coleslaws and dips -- for possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. At least some of the products are sold in Michigan stores, and state food inspectors have been instructed to conduct recall audit checks during their routine inspections or as directed.
In August the company recalled its Spartan Fresh Selections American Potato salad, sold in Spartan Stores in Michigan and Ohio. Several other products were recalled in September and October.
Federal regulators announced Thursday that Garden-Fresh Foods is recalling nearly 6,700 pounds of chicken and ham salads, mostly in large five to eight-pound packages.
That's in addition to similar, smaller-sized products from the company that were recalled last month. They included pasta, potato and egg salads, coleslaw, taco, spinach and dill dips, and other ready-to-eat foods.
Some of the products are sold under the Market Pantry and Archer Farms brands, which are sold at Target. Others are sold under the Spartan, Garden-Fresh, Grandpa's, Weis, Maggie's, Roundy's, Portillo's, Finest Traditions and D'Amico and Sons brands. A list of retail locations was not immediately available.
The USDA and FDA websites each have different lists of recalled products.
