Reser's Fine Foods of Beaverton, Oregon pulls nearly 109,000 cases of contaminated ready-to-eat refrigerated products from store shelves. The company reports Listeria monocytogenes could have taken form in the food. Listeria can cause serious, sometimes even fatal infections in people with weakened immune systems, like children or the elderly.

These products get distributed nationwide and even in Canada. If you shop at Wegmans, you may recognize a few of Reser's products. Wegmans sells Reser's cole slaw and potato salad. Wegmans has all the information on its website and warns customers not to consume the Reser's Fine Foods Cole Slaw or the potato salad with specific Use-By dates. The website also says customers can return these products for a full refund.

Tops also has a list of recalled items on its website including Resers ambrosia pudding, Resers pistachio pudding, Resers ambrosia salad, Resers four bean salad.

So far no illnesses have been reported.

You can find the full list of products potentially affected by contamination and the Use-By dates on the FDA website: www.fda.gov, and for more information you can call Reser’s Fine Foods Consumer Hotline 1-888-257-7913 (8am-8pm EST).
