The now-expired branded and private label salad kits were made at the Morrow facility.
The recall was prompted after a sample collected by the Georgia Department of Agriculture tested positive for the Listeria pathogen.
The salads recalled are Fresh Express Caesar Chopped Kit, Chopped Kit Chipotle Cheddar and Publix Makoto Honey Giner Salad Kit.
The salad mixes were distributed through distributors in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. The recalled salad products all have product code GO75 and a use-by date of March 31[ads1] or April 2, 2023.
The stores have removed the products from the shelves. Consumers are advised not to eat the products and throw them away.
