A press from the FDA listed a dozen Haggen stores in Washington state that have voluntarily recalled several packaged deli products due to possible Salmonella contamination.
Each of the products contains raw diced onions from Taylor Farms.
The release says, “In cooperation with the Taylor Farms recall of diced yellow onions that may be contaminated with Salmonella, 12 Haggen stores are voluntarily recalling deli products that contain raw Taylor Farms brand diced yellow onions.”
It also says, “No illnesses associated with this recall have been reported to date. Haggen is issuing this recall out of an abundance of caution. Customers who purchased the recalled products from the above-listed stores should discard or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.”
It goes on to explain, “Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis.”
