J&J Distributing Recalls Salad Products Due to Misbranding and Undeclared Allergens
J&J Distributing, a St. Paul, Minn. establishment, is recalling approximately 136 pounds of ready-to-eat salad products that contain meat due to misbranding and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agricultures Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain pine nuts (tree nut), a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.
The ready-to-eat salad products that contain meat were produced on various dates from December 21, 2019 through December 27, 2019.
- Kowalskis Markets Sicilian Chopped Salad - 14 oz. plastic sealed cartons with a sell by sticker on the carton with dates 12/27 through 01/02 (inclusive)

The products subject to recall bear establishment number EST. 38450 inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in Minnesota.
The problem was discovered during routine FSIS inspection activities.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
FSIS is concerned that some product may be in consumers refrigerators. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify that recalling firms are notifying their customers of the recall and that actions are being taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
