PROVIDENCE — The Rhode Island Department of Health warns that Mann Packing Co. is recalling several vegetable products sold to select retailers throughout the United States following a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notification of a possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled products include broccoli florets, vegetable trays, green beans, and cauliflower. A full product list with product details is available online. The recalled products have “Best If Enjoyed By” date of Oct. 11, 2019 to Nov. 16, 2019.

Public health officials have not reported any illness associated with these products, but Mann Packing is issuing the recall out of an abundance of caution, according to RIDOH.

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.

Consumers who believe that they are in possession of any of the products affected by this recall should dispose of them.

For any inquiries or comments, consumers should call 1-844-927-0707 or email consumers@mannpacking.com
