- Costco Chicken Salad With E. coli Recalled
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently announced that 19 people have contracted a potentially deadly E. coli infection after consuming rotisserie chicken salad sold by wholesale retailer, Costco.
Food poisoning from certain strains of E. coli bacteria, such as the strain discovered in the Costco chicken salad, can cause kidney failure, permanent organ damage, and death.
Infections related to the contaminated salad have been reported in seven states, including Utah and California. To date, five infected people have been hospitalized, two of whom were diagnosed with hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a form of kidney failure that can cause permanent organ damage.
The number of people sickened by this pathogen is expected to rise, as the strain of E. coli found in the chicken salad is known to be particularly life-threatening.
There are, however, no reported deaths thus far.
Costco stopped selling their chicken salad on November 20th, the day the company became aware of the E. coli outbreak. Consumers are advised to throw away any Costco rotisserie chicken salad purchased on or prior to November 20th, 2015.
A combination of diced celery and onions distributed by California-based Taylor Farms Pacific, Inc., has been identified as the primary source of the E. coli bacteria.
Taylor Farms Pacific, Inc. has since recalled additional products that may contain contaminated E. coli celery and onions.
The FDA has released an official list of all stores affected by the recall, which includes such retailers as Walmart, Sams Club, Target, Starbucks, and several others.
Food items at these stores which may contain contaminated celery and onions include pre-made sandwiches, wraps, and several kinds of prepared salads.
Retailers, restaurants and consumers should not buy, serve, sell or consume any recalled products from Taylor Farms Pacific, Inc.
The Costco E. coli outbreak follows the recent E. coli food poisoning incident at Chipotle restaurants in Washington and Oregon. However, there have been no reported HUS cases or deaths linked to the Chipotle case.

I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
