17 Florida Whole Foods Markets & Trader Joe's in 5 States Recall Fresh Food Items Made w/ Gills Onions (Possible Listeria)

submitted on July 30, 2012 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"
This recall is growing as additional products are being added to the lists of affected foods. Possible Listeria contamination in processed raw onions is causing a domino effect with addition recalls of prepared food items from grocery store chains in several states. See .

Whole Foods Market in the state of Florida only has initiated a voluntary recall of certain fresh food items sold in prepared foods departments, as well as one item sold in seafood departments of 17 Florida stores. The items are being recalled as they could have been made using raw yellow onions processed by Gills Onions, LLC, which initiated a recall on their product due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
Details and list of Whole Foods products are at .

Trader Joe's also recalled 5,610 pounds of their prepared barbecue chicken salad with number P-11079 and the use-by date July 30 on it, which was distributed in Southern California, Arizona, Southern Nevada, New Mexico and Texas. A complete list of the Trader Joe's affected products is posted at .

So far there have been no complaints of illness, but the prepackaged foods contained the raw onions that were previously recalled. None of the products included in the Gills expanded recall has tested positive, but the original warning was issued when Listeria was found in the facility in which the recalled products were processed on July 18, 2012. Gills has taken the facility out of service and voluntarily recalled all products processed there. The specific products include Diced and Slivered Red and Yellow Onions, and Diced Onion and Celery Mix. More details can be found at at . The recall has been expanded to Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Montana, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah and Washington. A complete list of affected Gill's Onion products with UPC codes is posted here - .

    Thanks for the heads-up. I'm just thankful that I haven't shopped at either stores for some time now.
