Company Announcement

Soledad, Calif., – February 9, 2024 – Braga Fresh is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of Marketside Bacon Ranch Crunch Chopped Salad Kits containing recalled cheese that contains Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The product is being recalled due to a sourced cheese ingredient having possible cross-contamination with recalled Cotija Cheese by Rizo Lopez Foods, Inc. with an active recall and outbreak investigation.

The recalled product, Marketside Bacon Ranch Crunch Chopped Salad Kits were distributed to a limited number of Walmart stores in California and Nevada and can be identified with listed details below. All affected products have been removed from store shelves and inventory.
