More than a thousand pounds of ready-to-eat salads are being recalled due to possible listeria and salmonella contamination.

The recall affects 1,786 pounds of packaged salads with chicken products that contain a corn ingredient that may be contaminated with salmonella and listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday.

The department added that at the time there had "been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products", but that "anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider".

Trader Joe's said the recall impacts Trader Jose's Mexicali Inspired Salad, Trader Joe's BBQ Flavored Chicken Salad and Trader Joe's Field Fresh Chopped Salad with Grilled Chicken Breast - all with a "best by" date between October 15 and October 20.

Officials say the products were shipped to retail locations in Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas.

The CDC warns the recall has not been finalized and customers should still watch out for symptoms of infection, and get rid of any beef with that number on it.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates salmonella causes about 1.2 million illnesses and 450 deaths in the USA each year, with food the source of an overwhelming majority of the cases. The bacteria causes abdominal cramps between 12 and 72 hours after infection, and usually last four to seven days. Most people recover without treatment. In some, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn.

Anyone who has the products should throw them away or return them to the store where they were purchased. People in the higher-risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek medical care and tell their health care provider about eating the contaminated food.
