Health officials linked a food poisoning outbreak to salads and dairy products from Whole Foods and other supermarkets.
An FDA inspection linked listeria bacteria to a Modesto, California, factory that makes cheese, yogurt, salad dressing, and sour cream for 13 brands.
The FDA recalled all salad kits, taco kits, salad dressing, chicken enchiladas, cheeses, yogurts and sour cream made by Rizo-López Foods.

Rizo-López removed aged cheese in January after the state of Hawaii found listeria in a sample of Rizo Bros.’ Aged Cotija.
