The Fresh Market and Target are among the chains hit by a listeria recall of egg salad, tuna salad, Thai lobster salad and deviled egg sandwiches made Thursday and sold under various brand names or sold free form.

A Friday night email from Fresh Market said the Thai Lobster Salad sold by the pound at the self-serve salad bar was included in the recall, as is the pre-packaged House of Thaller Thai Lobster Salad also sold there.

Elevation Foods company-written, FDA-posted recall notice said the Florida Department of Agriculture found listeria in three containers of egg salad. About 1,087 cases of product were sent directly to retailers warehouses around the nation.

“Elevation Foods is continuing to investigate potential sources of the problem,” the notice stated.

Here’s what Elevation named as being recalled. As seen with Fresh Market, sometimes, the product can be repackaged or unpackaged, so check with your grocer if you have any doubts or questions.
