Bagged salad sold in Pennsylvania stores is recalled

Pennsylvania retailers, including Giant Eagle supermarkets, have been affected by a recent product recall. The defective product recalled is bagged salad. The salad was found to have been contaminated and may be dangerous to some people if consumed. Government inspectors detected a contamination of Listeria monocytogenes in some stores where it was sold.

Though to date there have been no reports of illness as a result of the contaminated salad, authority's note that some groups of people could become seriously ill if they eat this product. Those at the highest risk are pregnant women, the elderly, those with repressed immune systems and children.

The defective product salad was not only sold in Pennsylvania but also across the nation. If a person finds that they have the recalled defective product in their refrigerator, they should not eat it. In fact, it would be wise for them to return the product to the grocery store where they purchased it as soon as possible. The store will likely provide a refund to customers.

Consuming a defective produce product can be dangerous to some individuals. Those at risk can suffer not only high fever, headache and diarrhea, but also more severe symptoms. Pregnant women could experience stillbirths or miscarriages.

After returning the defective product to the store where it was bought, those affected may wish to consult a medical professional, if necessary, to treat any symptoms. After recovery, it may be appropriate for the ill person to consider a review of Pennsylvania personal injury laws and procedures. At issue may be assessing the appropriateness of a personal injury claim.
