More than 180,000 pounds of ready-to-eat salad and sandwich products have been recalled due to possible E. coli contamination, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The products, from Richmond, VA-based Glass Onion Catering, include fully cooked chicken and ham products that were shipped to distribution centers in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, and Washington.

E. coli O157:H7, the particular strain associated with the recall, has sickened 26 people in 3 states in recent weeks, and 15 of those 26 people ate products included in the recall.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially fatal bacterium that causes dehydration, bloody diarrhea, and abdominal cramps following exposure to the organism. Young children and older adults are most at-risk for exposure.
