Salmonella can cause serious and even deadly infections, especially in young children or the elderly. Healthy adults are more likely to experience abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, nausea and vomiting.

There are 54 items on the list of prepared foods recalled by Whole Foods, with names, numbers and sell-by dates all available at the FDA’s website.

The store also said people who purchased baby spinach at the salad bar or hot bar prior to Jan. 23 should throw it out.

Customers can bring in a receipt for a full refund.
