About the Bagged Salad Recall
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Pacific Coast Fruit Company issued this recall because their retail and food service processed bagged salads may contain ingredients involved in the recent River Ranch bagged salad recall.
The FDA recommends that consumers who have purchased one of these bagged salads do not consume them and return them to the store where they were purchased.
