United Salad Co. Recalls Champ's Sliced Crimini Mushrooms Because of Possible Health Risk

United Salad Co., the distributor of Portland, Oregon, is initiating a voluntary recall of Champ's Sliced Crimini Mushrooms, product of Canada, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, 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 infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
