A Mount Vernon company is recalling thousands of pounds of a variety of deli chicken salad because of a possible listeria contamination.

You might find this chicken salad at your local deli — Sally Sherman Foods distributes this product, along with pastas, seafood and desserts to bagel stores, diners, and prisons and jails, to name a few, all around our area.

This recall includes 3,004 pounds of a variety of chicken salads made between Feb. 2 and Feb. 18.

According to the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service, the salad could cause listeriosis — a serious infection with symptoms like fever, diarrhea and muscle aches.

The infection in pregnant women can cause miscarriages, or can even be passed on to the newborn.

The USDA found the contamination by taking random samples inside the Mount Vernon plant. The USDA has classified this as a high health risk, and anyone with this product should throw it away immediately, or return it to the store.

So far, there have been no reports of illness from anyone eating the chicken salad. But the USDA said that anyone who has flu-like symptoms within two months of eating a Sally Sherman product should seek out a doctor.
