Another day, another example of why donuts are superior to salad.
A major salad recall has been announced and includes products sold from Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Walmart and 7-11.
The concern is possible salmonella and listeria contamination, although thankfully no cases have been reported. The issue originated with a â€ścorn productâ€ť somewhere down the supply chain, but if you have one of these ready-to-eat salads kicking around your refrigerator, youâ€™re going to want to throw the whole thing out.

Salmonella and listeria are both a pain in the buns, but listeria is particularly nasty in pregnant women. Listeria has been linked to miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery, and infections in newborns, making it well worth avoiding any of these above mentioned, asshole salads.
It is also worth noting this salad recall may expand (you can monitor recalls here), so maybe hit up those sweet simple carbs for a while. Ya know, for safety.
