Fresh Express: Urgent Update - No Recall Georgia State Department of Agriculture Recants Test Result;

Finds No Contamination is Present in Fresh Express Product; Regrets Error



Fresh Express Cancels Voluntary and Precautionary Recall

of 18 Pack, 1-Pound Iceberg Garden Salad with Ziplock



    SALINAS, Calif., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The Georgia State Department of
 Agriculture, whose random sample test of one bag of Fresh Express 18 Pack,
 1-Pound Garden Salad with Ziplock triggered a voluntary and precautionary
 recall by the company earlier today, now recants its test result, confirming
 that no contamination existed in the product and no recall was advised or
 warranted.
     The recall of the product previously issued is unnecessary and is
 cancelled.  The Georgia Department of Agriculture reports that it regrets the
 error.
     The company had been notified late yesterday by the Georgia Department of
 Agriculture that a random sampling of one bag of the product had produced a
 positive test result for Listeria.  No consumer illness or unusual calls had
 been reported and Fresh Express' own historical records of environmental
 testing had revealed no evidence of Listeria.  The company, however, had
 initiated a recall as a precautionary measure.
     Fresh Express spokeswoman Robin Sprague and Vice President for Quality and
 Food Safety Jerry Noland thanked the company's retail partners and customer
 service teams for their swift and effective initial response, even though the
 recall proved to be unwarranted and unnecessary.  They also reconfirmed the
 Fresh Express over-riding commitment to providing consumers with high quality,
 safe and great-tasting fresh salads.
