Fresh Express Caesar Salad Kits

Orlando, Florida – Fresh Express Incorporated issued a precautionary recall of a small quantity of 7.6 ounce net weight Fresh Express Caesar Salad Kits when it was learned that two bags of salad kits were mistakenly packed with incorrect condiments including walnuts, a tree nut allergen. According to the company, a total of 2,449 cases could possibly contain the wrong condiment packet and are subject to the precautionary recall. The recalled Caesar Salad Kits were distributed to approximately 19 states primarily in the Southeast and are identified by Product Code G163B13A with a Use-By Date of June 26.

Fresh Express representatives are already working with retailers to ensure any incorrectly packed salad kits are rapidly removed from store shelves and inventories. No other Fresh Express products are included in this recall. No illnesses are reported.

Consumers in possession of the recalled product should discard it. A refund is available where purchased or by contacting the Fresh Express Consumer Response Center toll-free at (800) 242-5472 during the hours of 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Time.

Upon being alerted to the mistake, Fresh Express took immediate action to protect the health and well-being of consumers who may be at risk from exposure to an undeclared walnut allergen. According to company procedure, Fresh Express products containing allergens must be properly labeled in accordance with the law. Any deviation is immediately investigated and action taken to ensure removal from the marketplace.
