Whole Foods Recalls Chicken and Pasta Salads Sold in NJ Due to Possible Listeria

Whole Foods Market has recalled curry chicken salad and deli pasta salad sold at stores in several East Coast states because of possible Listeria contamination.

The recalled salads had a "sell by" date of Oct. 23, according to the market's recall notice, and were sold in stores between Oct. 18 and Oct. 22. Whole Foods said no illnesses have been reported as a result.

The affected products were sold at stores in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey, according to Whole Foods.

Listeria infection can be deadly for young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. In healthy people, it can cause high fever, headaches, nausea, aches, abdominal pain and diarrhea. It can also cause stillbirth and miscarriages if contracted by pregnant women.

Whole Foods has published a list of all affected products here.

Customers who have any of the products can bring their receipts back to the store for a refund.
