A brand sold at Trader Joe's, Glass Onion Catering, has recalled more than 90 tons of chicken products because of possible E. coli contamination. The Northern California-based gourmet food line sells ready-to-eat salads and wraps.
The prepackaged goods, which feature fully cooked chicken and ham, were pulled Sunday after 26 people in three states were sickened with E. coli O157:H7, ContraCostaTimes.com reported.
The O157:H7 strain of E. coli causes dehydration, bloody diarrhea, and abdominal cramps that take effect about 2-8 days after exposure, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Some people recover on their own, but others can experience kidney failure.
