If you’ve purchased fresh vegetables from Meijer, Whole Foods Market, Albertsons, Walmart, Trader Joe’s or other retailers from September 27th through October 20th, be sure to check your produce!
Mann Packing is voluntarily recalling minimally processed vegetable products because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
The recalled products were distributed throughout the United States and Canada with “best if used by” dates from October 11th to October 20th listed on the front of the packaging.

Public health officials have not yet reported any illnesses associated with these products.
However, the Mann Packaging recall has also prompted recalls at Whole Foods, Randall’s, Tom Thumb, Albertsons, Triple B Corp, Vons, Pak N’ Save and other retailers. Go here for more details.
