20 Brands of Vegetable Packages from Packaging Company Recalled • MON OCT 23, 2017 1:26 PM CT

Precautions for possibly Listeria contamination have been underway since October 19, 2017 involving Mann's -- a vegetable packing company. Twenty brands and 32 products connected to a Mann's sample that tested positive for Listeria contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) random sampling program found a single positive result for Listeria monocytogenes in one of Mann packaging products. Out of an abundance of caution, Mann Packing voluntarily decided to recall certain vegetable products on October 19, 2017.

Brands included Trader Joe's Kohlrabi Salad Blend, Walmart Broccoli Slaw, Archer Farms' Brussels Sprouts, and Meijer.
The recalled products were distributed throughout the United States and Canada with "best if used by" dates from Oct. 11 to Oct. 20 listed on the front of the packaging.

Products that were sold in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin, were sold between Sept. 27 and 0ct. 20.

All recalled products have now expired, and there are no reported illnesses linked to the consumption of the vegetables. Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled, but can cause illness with symptoms that can include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness.

The recall is separate from the recall involving E.coli contamination precautions for products from BrightFarms greenhouse and packing in Rochelle, Illinois. (See also: BrightFarms, Supplying Grocers in Illinois and Wisconsin, Recall Vegetables for Possible E. coli Contamination)
