Potandon Produce L.L.C. of Idaho Falls, Idaho is voluntarily recalling Green Giant Fresh whole yellow onions in 2 lb. bags, 3 lb. bags, and 5 lb. bags; whole white onions in 2 lb. bags; and whole red onions in 2 lb. bags delivered directly to three UNFI retail distribution centers (DCs) in Fargo, North Dakota; Bismarck, North Dakota and Hopkins, Minnesota between July 9 and Aug 6, 2021. This recall does not affect any other Green Giant Fresh products or include any Green Giant canned or frozen vegetable products.
The recalled onions were sourced from ProSource Produce LLC and are being recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
The company has notified UNFI about the recall. For additional information please refer to the description, lot codes, and labels at the end of this press release.
Potandon Produce is issuing this press release and keeping the U.S. Food and Drug Administration informed of its recall process to assure that consumers are properly alerted. The recall was initiated after the company was informed that it sold onions recalled by ProSource Produce LLC.
Anyone who has the recalled whole onions in their possession or has used them as an ingredient in a dish should not consume them and should either dispose of the product properly or return it to the place of purchase for a refund.
"The recalled onions are past their typical shelf life and to our knowledge, none of them have tested positive for Salmonella. Nevertheless, we are initiating this recall in an abundance of caution because we want to minimize even the slightest risk to public health," said Mel Davenport, CEO at Potandon Produce.
