SALINAS, Calif. (AP) - A California producer of bagged salad mix is voluntarily recalling 2,100 cases distributed under store brands in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Iowa because of the potential that some packages may be contaminated with listeria.

The lettuce was sold under the store brand names Hy-Vee salads and Giant Eagle's "Farmers Market." The lettuce has a "best if sold by" date of Oct. 14.

River Ranch Fresh Foods of Salinas issued the recall after random tests indicated the presence of the listeria organism in bagged lettuce sold for the Giant Eagle chain. The company recalled all lettuce bagged on Sept. 27.

No illnesses have been reported.

Company president Bruce Knobeloch told The Associated Press that he is working with federal and state regulators to notify consumers. Consumers may contact the company at 1-800-762-7708.
