CNY Vegetables Part Of Latest Recall
If you buy vegetables here in Central New York from Walmart, Aldi's, or make the trip to Trader Joe's, you'll have to check your bags. One brand is now on recall.
Mann Packing is currently conducting a voluntary recall of bagged vegetables due to contamination with listeria. The vegetables in question are: broccoli, broccoli slaw, brussels sprouts, vegetable medleys, carrots, cauliflower, and others listed on the FDA website.
According to the recall notice, the products could have listeria in them:
“The recalled product has the potential to 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. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.”
The recalled products were distributed throughout the United States and Canada with “best if used by” dates from October 11th- October 20th listed on the front of the packaging. If you have any questions, contact your local retailer for more info and a refund.
