Fresh Garden Highway Cobb Salad
Fresh Garden Highway Cobb Salad with a sell-by date through 2/6/2012 has been identified as being a potential vector for listeria monocytogenes. The products were sold by retailers throughout Texas, according to a press release describing the recall. The establishment number on these products will be P-44056. This will appear near the USDA mark of inspection.
If you purchased these products from a Texas retailer and were stricken with listeria or a related illness, be sure you contact a lawyer about the matter. Companies are most certainly responsible for the damages caused when they put contaminated food out on the market and you’ll want to be sure that you don’t end up dealing with the resulting financial burdens on your own if you were affected by this product.
The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service has more information.
What if They’re Not in Texas?

If you believe that you may have cause to file a lawsuit over being injured by a defective product, be sure to contact an attorney as soon as you can. There are limitations on how long you have to act, so it’s best to contact an attorney right away so that you can explore the options you have available to you and decide whether or not pursuing a lawsuit would be a good choice for you.
