If you buy salads at Whole Foods Market, beware.

Whole Foods is recalling its curry chicken salad and classic deli pasta salad in seven states due to possible listeria contamination.

The salads are being recalled in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey. The salads were sold in a variety of ways - prepackaged, in salad bars, in store chef cases, and in sandwiches and wraps prepared in the stores.

The affected products were sold between October 18 and October 22 and have a "sell by" date of October 23. A sampling of the products tested positive for listeria during a routine inspection. No illnesses have been reported.

If you have purchased one of these products, the company wants you to throw it away and bring the receipt to the store for a full refund. Listeria can cause fever, muscle aches, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
