Roasted Peppers in Salad May be Contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes or Salmonella

GREENSBORO, N.C., Oct. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Specialty grocer The Fresh Market is issuing a voluntary recall of Smokey

Mozzarella Pasta Salad sold in the deli department due to an ingredient in the salad, roasted red peppers, that may be contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes or Salmonella.  The product is sold from the full-service deli case and packaged in the deli self-service case, available in all The Fresh Market locations. The potential for contamination was discovered when The Fresh Market was notified by its supplier that the roasted red peppers used in the Smokey Mozzarella Pasta Salad may be contaminated.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
