CLEVELAND — A New Jersey company is recalling approximately 97,272 pounds of salad products that contain meat or poultry because the lettuce could be contaminated with E. coli, according to the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The products were produced from Oct. 14 through Oct. 16. The products have the establishment number “EST. 18502B” inside the USDA mark of inspection.

These items were shipped to distribution locations in 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.

These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

The recall comes after the Maryland Department of Health collected an unopened package of the product and the lettuce tested positive for E. coli. All products from the same lot of lettuce are included in the recall.

FSIS is concerned that some product may be in distribution centers, restaurants, or institutional refrigerators or freezers.
