A New Jersey company is recalling nearly 100,000 pounds of salad products containing meat or poultry.
According to a release from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Missa Bay, LLC recalled the products because the lettuce could be contaminated with E. coli.
The products were produced between Oct. 14, 2019 and Oct. 16, 2019. They all have “use by” dates of late October to early November.

The items were distributed to locations in nearly two dozen states, including: Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin.
The discovery came from the Maryland Department of Health, which tested an unopened package of salad as part of a foodborne illness outbreak investigation.
The lettuce tested positive for E. coli.
“All products from the same lot of lettuce are included in the recall,” the USDA said in its release.
The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service urges all consumers, including restaurants to throw any of the contaminated food away, or return them.
The FSIS is concerned some of the products could be in freezers, refrigerators or distribution centers.
