The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information that Reser's Fine Foods, Inc., of Beaverton, Ore., is voluntarily expanding its Oct. 22, 2013, recall of refrigerated ready-to-eat products because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled refrigerated ready-to-eat products were distributed nationwide and in Canada. The products were sold in retail and food service establishments. The packages will be marked with a Use-by-Date or Best By Date and followed by a plant identifier code of 20.
There are no confirmed illnesses associated with these products. The recalled products were manufactured at the Topeka, Kan., salad manufacturing facility.
