E. Coli Illnesses Traced To Recalled Packages Of Vegetable Mix

November 26, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
A packaged mixture of diced celery and onion has been recalled because an outbreak of E. coli-caused illness has been traced to it. Taylor Farms Pacific recalled the mix “out of an abundance of caution,” the FDA said in a statement. The mixture was used to make chicken salad, Thai-style salads, packaged dinners and wraps, and other foods sold by Costco, Target, Starbucks and other stores and restaurants. The illnesses of 19 people in seven states nationwide were traced to the vegetable mix. Costco posted signs in its stores and provided detailed purchase logs to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help it track buyers and ingredient sources.
