Vegetables Recalled For Listeria Risk

Vegetable supplier Mann Packing has issued a voluntary recall for several packaged vegetables, salads and other products sold across the U.S. and Canada due to a potential risk of listeria contamination.

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that causes weakened immune systems or fatal infections in young children and frail adults.

Mann Packing said it issued the recall in response to a single positive result found on one of its products during random sampling by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Mann Packing is issuing this recall out of an abundance of caution.

Public health officials have not reported any illnesses associated with these products.

The recalled products were distributed throughout the United States and Canada with "best if used by" dates from October 11 to October 20 listed on the front of the packaging.

A full list of recalled products and UPC codes are available on the FDA's website.
