Veggies sold at Walmart, other stores recalled over Listeria concern
Some packaged vegetables sold at Valley Walmart stores and other retailers around the country have been recalled over Listeria concerns.
The Food and Drug Administration announced this week that Mann Packing Co., Inc. of Salinas, California is recalling a series of vegetable products sold to select some in the United States and Canada.
Among those retailers are Walmart stores in several states, including those locations in Austintown, Cortland, East Liverpool, Middlefield, Poland, Salem, Liberty, Greenville, Hermitage, and New Castle.
The recall is a response to a notification by the Food and Drug Administration and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency of potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. To date, Mann Packing says public health officials have not reported any illness associated with these products.
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. P
