Fresh cut vegetables recalled across North America after Listeria found

Mann Packing of Salinas, California is voluntarily recalling minimally processed vegetable products because they may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes. 

Mann Packing is issuing this recall in response to a single positive result found during random sampling by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. To date, public health officials have not reported any illnesses associated with these products.

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 brands of fresh vegetable products included in the recall are:
  • Mann’s
  • Western Family
  • Archer Farms
  • HEB
  • Little Salad Bar
  • Signature Farms
  • Trader Joe’s
  • Walmart
  • Cross Valley Farms
  • Sysco Natural
The recalled products were distributed throughout the United States and Canada with "best if used by" dates from October 12 to October 20 listed on the front of the packaging. For recalled products distributed at retail and foodservice, product names, UPC codes and "best if used buy" dates are listed here.
