All of the packages have a "Best if used by Date" of January 15, 2011.

The grocer is urging customers to toss out the affected salads and bring their receipts to any "Stop & Shop" store for a full refund.

Listeria can cause serious infections in young children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. So far, nobody has reported any illness in this case.
