Vegetable recall for possible listeria hits H-E-Bs, Walmarts across USA and Canada
A California-based packing company announced a voluntary recall of vegetable products over a potential listeria contamination, according to the company's news release.
Mann Packing of Salinas, California, alerted buyers that several vegetable products were being voluntarily recalled from stores such as H-E-B and Walmart in the USA and Canada.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency notified the company about the potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination. No illnesses were reported Sunday.
Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that causes serious infection with symptoms such as fever and diarrhea. The infection is most likely to sicken pregnant women and their newborns, adults age 65 or older and people with weakened immune systems, according to the FDA.
The recalled products have a best buy date of Oct. 11-Nov. 16, 2019. Customers who bought these should dispose of the product. For questions, people can contact the company's 24-hour customer service at 1-844-927-0707 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
