Potato Salad Recalled in Several Midwest States in Listeria Scare

DBC Foods Inc. recalled potato salad sold both prepackaged and at deli counters, because it could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria is a microorganism that can cause serious or fatal infections in children, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Healthy adults can experience symptoms including fevers, severe headaches, nausea and diarrhea.

The prepackaged potato salad was sold in 1-pound containers under the labels Midwest Pride, Coborn's and Cash Wise. The containers have lot number 7057018A. The Midwest Pride salad has an expiration date of April 2. The Coborn's and Cash Wise salads have expiration dates of March 9. The salad packages were sold in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Michigan.

The potato salad sold at deli counters, packed to order, was available in 89 stores in the above states, plus Nebraska, between Feb. 27 and March 16.

For a full refund, return the salad to the place of purchase. For more information, call 320-203-6352
