SEATTLE, Washington – Triple B Corporation of Seattle, Washington is voluntarily recalling salad kits and stir fry mixes due to possible contamination with 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.
