Some vegetables sold at Walmart, Aldi recalled for listeria concerns
SALINAS, Calif. (WSET) - Some packages of vegetables sold at stores like Walmart, Trader Joe's, and Aldi are being recalled because they may be contaminated with Listeria.
Mann Packing issued the voluntary recall in response to a single positive result found during random sampling by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
According to the release from the Food and Drug Administration, the company issued the recall out of an "abundance of caution."
The recalled products were distributed throughout the United States and Canada with best by dates from October 11 to October 20 on the packaging.
The full list of products includes bags of broccoli florets, vegetable medleys, veggie trays with dressing, veggie trays with hummus, and cauliflower florets.
According to the FDA, the company is cooperating with health officials and is contacting all affected customers to confirm the recalled product has been removed from store shelves.
"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."
Those who have bought the recalled products should not consumer them.
They should instead get rid of them, or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
