Tops Has Recall At Brighton Store On S. Clinton Avenue

Tops Friendly Markets Logo

Tops has issued a recall in connection with a product sold at its store at 1900 South Clinton Avenue in Brighton.

The supermarket chain says it affects its store prepared rotisserie chick salad, sold from the in-store deli at that location, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria.

It may affect shoppers who bought the product between August 31st through September 9th.  It was sold in a clear plastic container.

Tops says it was only purchased by 30 customers and the company  has personally contacted each customer who bought it. If a customer is unsure, they should return the product for a full refund.

Consumers with additional questions can call the Tops consumer affairs office at 1-800-525-2522 and select option #3.

Tops says that last week, in a random test by the state, one sample of that in-store prepared rotisserie chicken salad tested positive for Listeria. Tops was notified Wednesday and immediately removed all of the product form the deli case. That deli department is being sterilized.

Again, the recall ONLY affects that Brighton store on South Clinton Avenue.

So far there have been no cases of illness reported to Tops. Listeria is a bacteria that can cause serious infections in young children, pregnant women, older people and others with weakened immune systems.
