Illinois-Based Food Evolution Recalls 7,000 Pounds of Ready-to-Eat Dip and Salad Products Ahead of Super Bowl

An Illinois company is recalling nearly 7,000 pounds of ready-to-eat dip and salad products containing meat, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced Friday.

Ahead of Super Bowl Sunday, Food Evolution, of Schiller Park, Illinois, issued the recall because the products “were produced without the benefit of federal inspection.”

The USDA classified the announcement as a “Class I” recall, which it defines as a “health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.”

The affected products were only distributed in Illinois, according to the recall notice, which said there have been “no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.”
