Taco products, wraps, salads recalled after listeria found on surface used to make them

House brands of Kwik Trip convenience stores and Fresh Thyme Listeria are among the food products recalled in several states after listeria was found in a food manufacturing facility, FDA and USDA-posted recall notices announced Saturday.

J&J Distributing made the recalls after finding “a utensil used to produce” the taco dips, wraps, salads and sandwiches had listeria.

Listeria hits about 1,600 Americans each year, the CDC says, and kills about 260. The worst consequences usually hit senior citizens, children under 5 and people with damaged immune systems. Listeria can cause miscarriage and stillbirths in pregnant women. Symptoms in people who aren’t pregnant include confusion, poor balance, high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

The products recalled:

Caribou: 9-ounce Turkey Sandwich, code date 26-Feb.
