Listeria Concern Prompts Nationwide Recall of Over 125 Vegetable Products

Concerns over listeria contamination prompted a recall of more than 125 vegetable products sold to stores nationwide with affected brands including Signature Farms, Del Monte, Marketside and Trader Joe’s.

The products are being recalled voluntarily by Mann Packing Co. who made the announcement on Sunday, Nov. 3. The company is acting “out of an abundance of caution,” according to a press release from Mann Packing. Listeria bacteria can cause serious and, occasionally, fatal infections in children, the elderly or those with compromised immune systems. Healthy people may suffer from high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, and other symptoms. An infection could cause a miscarriage or stillbirth among pregnant women.

So far, health officials in the United States and Canada have not reported any illnesses due to the products listed in the recall.

Recalled products have a “Best If Enjoyed By” date from Oct. 11, 2019, to Nov. 16, 2019. A list of the recalled products is below.
