FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Wayne, WV -- October 25, 2006 -- Ballard's Farm Sausage, Inc. announces an extension of its voluntary recall involving all lots of Ballard's Farm 24 oz. Amish Macaroni salad, Ballard's Farm 24 oz. Amish Sweet Slaw, Ballard's Farm 12 oz. Cole Slaw, and Food City 12 oz. Cole Slaw because of a possible health risk. This is in addition to the recall of Ballard's Farm 12 oz. Egg Salad on 10/18/06.

Ballard's Farm is announcing this recall extension based on laboratory tests that show the products may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. This organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

These products were distributed in West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Illinois, Indiana, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Delaware, Michigan and Alabama.

The products being recalled are displayed in a clear plastic cup with the products name displayed on the side of the lid and the side of the cup. Please return all of these items to your location of purchase for a full refund.

Ballard's Farm has voluntarily shut down the salad production line for a complete top-to-bottom investigation.

Consumers with any questions may contact the company at 800-346-7675. Our regular business hours are 8:00 am until 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
