Some Trader Joe's Salads Could Kill You (Maybe)

Today in "this world is going to kill us all sooner rather than later" news, two types of pre-packaged salads sold at Trader Joe's here in Arizona were apparently contaminated with E. coli O157:H7 (the extra letters must mean it's extra dangerous). Produced from Sept. 23 and Nov. 6, 2013 by Glass Onion Catering in Richmond, California (side note: someone must have been working on the Richmond Wikipedia page lately, because it used to be incredibly depressing; now all the bad stuff is stuck in the "crime and disaster" section, including the use of the term "mini-Bhopal"), the Trader Joe's salads in question are the "Field Fresh Chopped Salad with Grilled Chicken" and the "TRADER JOSÉ’S MEXICALI SALAD with Chili Lime Chicken."

If you still have one of those sitting in your fridge, the USDA suggests you dispose of it immediately.
