Warning: Salmonella-Contaminated Tuna Salad

The Georgia Department of Agriculture has found Salmonella in a sample of “Deli Fresh” tuna salad manufactured by Allison’s Gourmet Kitchens of Moore, OK. The contamination was found during a routine sampling program, and no illnesses have been reported.

The tuna salad was sold in a 12-ounce packaged with the marking "USE BY 07/29/08 B1."

Georgia has notified the FDA of its finding. Ingle's – the store where the contaminated salad was purchased – has removed the product from its shelves. Department of Agriculture sanitarians will be checking other grocery stores in the state to make sure that the Salmonella-contaminated product has been removed from sale.

Consumers who have purchased this tuna salad should either discard it, or return it to the store for a refund. Anyone who has already eaten the contaminated product and begins to experience symptoms of salmonellosis – diarrhea, stomachache, low-grade fever, vomiting – should seek medical care.

    While it is good to inform the public of contaminated foods, you do need to be cautious of copyright violations.
