Over 181,000 lbs of ready-to-eat food products are being recalled by California-based company Glass Onion Catering due to possible E. coli O157:H7 contamination, as reported by the USDA on Sunday, November 10.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) identified at least 16 different types of packed salads and sandwiches with cooked chicken and ham that may have been contaminated with the harmful bacteria. People who ate the foods may suffer from dehydration, diarrhea, or kidney failure. FSIS said they are currently working with other health authorities to figure out what may be the cause of the contamination.
Consumers were advised to immediately dispose of the recalled food products.
