Recall of LeaderBrand salads

Friday, 10 March 2017: A precautionary recall has been initiated by LeaderBrand following routine testing which returned positive for Listeria monocytogenes in one of their salad products.

At the request of LeaderBrand, Countdown has removed from our shelves the LeaderBrand Classic Salads, Fresh Plus Salads, Value Bag Salads and 100% Fresh Salads. Any product purchased with ‘Best Before’ dates up to and include 18 March should not be consumed.

The recall also affects LeaderBrand products at New World and Pak’n Save supermarkets as well as salad products distributed to Pita Pit and Subway outlets.

Countdown encourages anyone who purchased these products to return them to any store for a full refund.

Countdown has not received any reports of illness associated with this product. If customers do start to feel unwell they should seek medical advice from their GP or call the Healthline on 0800 611 116.
