To Prevent Hysteria The City Recalls Vegetables With Possible Listeria From Harlem To Hollis

More than 140 vegetable products widely sold in New York City grocery stores have been recalled over fears of potential listeria contamination.

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 in food produced by California-based Mann Packing Co. The action affects stores nationwide.

The recalled products have a “Best if Enjoyed By” date of October 11, 2019, to November 16, 2019. The packages were sold under a variety of brand names, including Walmart’s Marketside, Mann’s, HEB and Signature Farms.

Public health officials have not yet reported any illness associated with these products.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Listeria infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
