More than 100 vegetable products recalled due to listeria concerns

Mann Packing Co., Inc. recently announced the voluntary recall of a series of vegetable products sold to select retailers in the United States and Canada, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The recalled packages include some varieties of Del Monte, Trader Joe’s, and Mann’s.

The voluntary recall is a response to a notification by the Food and Drug Administration and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency of a potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. Mann Packing is issuing this recall out of an abundance of caution.

Listeria monocytogenes is 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 have “Best If Enjoyed By” date of October 11, 2019 to November 16, 2019.

To date, public health officials have not reported any illness associated with these products.

Consumers who believe that they are in possession of any of the products affected by this recall should dispose of the product in an appropriate waste container.

For any inquiries or comments, all consumers can call the 24 hour customer service line at 1-844-927-0707 or email Mann Packing Co., Inc. at consumers@mannpacking.com
