Secondary Recalls For Products Made with Veggies Contaminated with Listeria and Salmonella

Last week we started compiling a secondary recall list for products that were made with corn that may have been contaminated with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. Those recalls have now exploded to include a dozen companies, and the products that they were made with now included mushrooms, tomatoes, tomatillos, and onions. This list has been updated with the newest information from the USDA and FDA. No illnesses have been reported in connection with this issue.

One of the recalls named McCain Foods as the supplier of the vegetables. Since it’s unusual for foods to be recalled for two separate pathogens, it’s possible that McCain Foods is the origin of the recalled vegetables, but we don’t know for sure. At any rate, keep referring to this page to stay up to date on all of the recalls.

Don’t eat any of these foods. Throw them away in a secure garbage can, or return them to the store where you bought them for a refund.

It’s a good idea to clean out your fridge or freezer with a solution of 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to 1 gallon of warm water after you discard these items. Listeria can grow at temperatures below 40°F. Freezing doesn’t kill it.

If you ate any of these foods, watch yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea.
