Ready Pac Bagged Salad Products Recalled Due to E. coli Contamination

FDA

Using a bagged salad for tonight's dinner? Check if you've got a Ready Pac brand bag: the FDA has announced a recall of several of the brand's bagged salad varieties due to E. coli contamination. The recalled bags have a use-by date of November 18, 2011.

Although no illnesses have been reported, E. coli can cause diarrhea and, most likely in young children and the elderly, a potentially fatal kidney infection called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome.
