Safeway recalls potato salad over salmonella
PLEASANTON, Calif. (AP) – Safeway Inc. said Thursday it is voluntarily recalling potato salad products over concerns about possible salmonella contamination.
Safeway said the two red potato salad with dill products were sold in its deli department at Safeway, Vons, Pavilions and Carrs stores in 10 states in the West.
Customers who purchased the products are asked to discard them or return them for a refund.
Safeway said it is recalling the product after Reser’s Fine Foods, the source of the products, announced its own voluntary recall.
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.
