Recently recalled ready-to-eat salads should be tossed out or returned, officials said.
Ready Pac Foods Inc. issued a recall for 222,915 pounds of ready-to-eat salads due to an undeclared allergen, the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a news release on Thursday.
Stores nationwide received the recalled salads, the government agency said.
Recalled products include Ready Pac Bistro Chef Salad, Signature Farms Cafe Bowl Chef Salad, Kroger Chef Salad Kit for One, Little Salad Bar Chef Salad and Kroger Garden Salad with Chicken and Bacon.
The mislabeled ranch salad dressing, produced by Litehouse Inc., contains anchovies that are not listed on the label, the government agency said.
Establishment numbers “M-18502B,” “P-18502B,” “M-32081,” or “P-32081” can be found on the packaged salad next to the use by date.

Any recalled salads produced between Aug. 27 and Sept. 19 should be thrown away or returned, the agency said.
“There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products,” the agency said. “Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.”
