Dozens of vegetable products recalled over listeria concern

National

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A California-based company is recalling dozens of vegetable products because they could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled Mann Packing products were sold under several brand names including Mann’s, Del Monte, Signature Farms, and Trader Joe’s in the U.S. and Canada and have ‘best if enjoyed by’ dates of Oct. 11, 2019 through Nov. 16, 2019.

Listeria can be deadly in young children, elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. The organism can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
