Glass Onion Catering of Richmond. California is recalling ready-to-eat salads and sandwich wrap products with fully-cooked chicken and ham, the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement on Monday.

The products are being recalled along with other foods regulated by the Food and Drug Administration.

The Glass Onion products were produced between September 23 and November 6, and were intended for retail sale in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Oregon and Washington.

The FDA found last week that 26 people were found in three states with “indistinguishable E. coli patterns,” and 15 of them reported that they had consumed ready-to-eat salads made by Glass Onion.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps, and can cause in some people a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).
