Iowa company recalls food for vending machines in 3 states
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) —
Federal officials say an Iowa company has recalled salads and sandwich wraps sent out to vending machines in three states because they were distributed without federal inspection.
Marengo-based Pride of Iowa Sandwiches is recalling products containing more than 230 pounds of chicken, pork and beef sent to vending machines in Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota.
The recall was announced Monday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which considers the products a health hazard and advises consumers to avoid eating them.
They include packaged Deli Fresh branded Caesar salads and wraps containing chicken, roast beef and bacon.
There have been no confirmed reports of illness.
Below is a list of affected products:
- 11.2-oz. clam shell packages of “Deli Fresh CAESAR SALAD” with “FRESH THRU” dates through 11/13.
- 6.2-oz. tray packages of “Deli Fresh SOUTHWEST CHICKEN FAJITA TOMATO BASIL WRAP” with “FRESH THRU” dates through 11/16.
- 8.5-oz. tray packages of “Deli Fresh BBQ/BACON/CREAM CHEESE ROAST BEEF ON JALAPENO CHEESE WRAP” with “FRESH THRU” dates through 11/16.
- 6.3-oz. tray packages of “Deli Fresh RANCH CHICKEN FAJITA SPINACH WRAP” with “FRESH THRU” dates through 11/16.
- 7.8-oz. tray packages of “Deli Fresh BISCUITS & GRAVY” with “FRESH THRU” dates through 11/16.
