Mann Packing of Salinas, California is issuing a recall on vegetables and dishes that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The company packages a variety of vegetables, from brussels sprouts to broccoli and cauliflower and mixed veggies, that are distributed to stores across Canada and the United States under several brands including Walmart, Trader Joe's and Archer Farms.
The products on the recall list were distributed with "best if used by" dates from October 11 to October 20, which is listed on the front of the packaging.
Customers who have the recalled items should discard them or return them to the place of purchase for a refund. Anyone with questions can call the 24 hour hotline: 888-470-2681 or visit veggiesmadeeasy.com/products.
Listeria is an organism that could cause serious and sometimes fatal infections to children, the elderly, or those with compromised immune systems.
"As an owner of this company and a mom, providing safe and healthy foods to our consumers and their families is always our top priority," said Gina Nucci, Director of Corporate Marketing. "This voluntary recall is a reflection of our commitment to ensuring the safety of our consumers."
The recall is in response to a single positive result found in one of their products during random sampling.
No illnesses have been reported.
