More than 100 vegetable products sold under nearly a dozen different brand names have been recalled because they could be contaminated with Listeria.

Mann Packing Co., Inc. (Mann) announced Friday the voluntary recall in response to a notification by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency of a potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

This link lists all the recalled products sold in the United States. Anyone who has these products are being urged to throw them away.

“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. Mann Packing will continue to work closely with the authorities to investigate the issue,” said the company in a press release. 

The recalled products have “Best If Enjoyed By” date of October 11, 2019 to November 16, 2019. Please see below for a full list of affected products as well as product images available.

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

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