Haig’s Delicacies of Hayward, CA is recalling 342 cases of Taboule Salad because it may be contaminated with Escherichia coli O157:H7 bacteria (E. Coli O157:H7). E. coli O157:H7 causes a diarrheal illness often with bloody stools. Although most healthy adults can recover completely within a week, some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.
The Taboule Salad was distributed in California through retail stores.
The Taboule Salad is packaged in a 10oz plastic tub with UPC 7-08756-77055-9 as well as a 3-unit multi pack with UPC 7-08756-37055-1 and a 6-lb bulk foodservice bag with UPC 7-08756-77077-1.
The affected lot is 17298 with an expiration date of 11/16/17.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the company detected the presence of E. coli O157:H7.
