    The "Stop & Shop" grocery chain is warning customers to throw away salads sold under the "Nature's Promise" brand. The store says the pre-packaged products may be contaminated with listeria.

    The voluntary recall affects the following products:

    Northeast Microwave Organic Spinach, 9 oz.,
    Nature’s Promise Organic Baby Romaine, 7 oz.,
    Nature’s Promise Organic Baby Spinach, 7 oz. & 16 oz.,
    Nature’s Promise Organic Spring Mix, 7 oz. & 16oz.,
    Nature’s Promise Organic Spring Mix w/ Herbs, 7 oz.,

    Nature’s Promise Baby Spinach w/ Ranch Dressing & Fork, 3.5 oz.,
    Nature’s Promise Organic Caesar Salad w/ Caesar Supreme Dressing & Fork, 5.75 oz.,
    Nature’s Promise Organic Spring Mix w/ Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing & Fork, 3 oz.
    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.
