Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

(Haverhill, Mass.-AP, Mar. 14, 1005 9:05 PM) _ The manufacturer of prepared tuna salad is conducting a voluntary recall because of possible contamination.
The product is made by Hans Kissle Company and sold under the Hans Kissle, Shaw's, Stop & Shop, Star Market and Block and Barrel labels.
The Haverhill-based company says the tuna could be contaminated by Listeria, which causes flu-like symptoms in healthy people, but is potentially fatal for young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.
It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths.
Hans Kissle is recalling five-pound and eight-ounce containers with sell-by dates between March 15th and March 31st.
The tuna salad in question was sold in all six New England states as well as New York and New Jersey.
Consumers who bought the tuna salad should return it to the store they bought it from for a full refund.
