Vegetables recalled from Walmart, other stores due to listeria concerns

Mann’s Family Favorites- Cauliflower Florets

California-based Mann Packing says Listeria monocytogenes was found in one of their processed vegetable offerings.

The foods were voluntarily recalled over concerns about the possibility of listeria contamination. All the products are from Mann Packing of Salinas, California.

The notice was issued last week on the Food and Drug Administration's website.

Trader Joe's, Walmart and other stores are listed among those who received some of the products, and have been instructed to remove them from their shelves. They all have "best if used by" dates of October 11 to October 20 on the front side of the packaging.

Among the biggest retail recalls, stemming from Mann Packing's, is Meijer's.

Archer Farms (Target): 12-oz. bags of broccoli slaw, broccoli cauliflower florets, broccoli medley and brussels sprouts, along with 9-oz. bags of shaved brussels sprouts, and 10-oz. bags of cauliflower florets.

In response, Meijer has recalled several dozen products, including broccoli, cauliflower and asparagus, that were sold in six states: Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

"As the owner of this company and as 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 for Mann Packing.

According to the CDC, listeria has a variety of symptoms associated with it, though it can often cause fever or diarrhea like many other foodborne illnesses. "This voluntary recall is a reflection of our commitment to ensuring the safety of our consumers". One in five people with invasive listeriosis died from the disease, which can also cause miscarriage, stillbirth or newborn death.

All products should be either tossed out or returned where they were bought for refund.
