The Mann Packaging Co. is voluntarily recalling more than 100 vegetable products sold in the United States and Canada for possible listeria contamination. This recall is in response to a notification by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency of potential contamination.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious illness in young children, elderly people, and anyone with weakened immune systems. Healthy people can also be affected, and it can be particularly dangerous for pregnant women and their unborn children. So far, there have been no reported illnesses associated with these products according to the company.
The products in question have a “Best If Enjoyed By” date of October 11, 2019, through November 16, 2019. The packaged vegetables were sold under a variety of brand names, including Del Monte, HEB, Hungryroot, Kroger Organic, Mann’s, Marketside, O Organics, Signature Farms, Sysco, and Trader Joe’s.
An extensive list of products recalled in the U.S. and their photos can be found here. There is a separate list of products recalled in Canada. If you discover that you have any of the affected products in your possession, you’re urged to dispose of them immediately.
Customers with any questions should call the company at 1-844-927-0707 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
