Russ Davis Wholesale Recalls Veggies For Possible Listeria

Russ Davis Wholesale, a processor and distributor of fresh produce,  is recalling many types of vegetables for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. This recall is in response to the Mann Packing recall in mid October 2019 for Listeria. No reports of illness have been received to date in association with these recalled items.

You can see the long list of affected products, UPC numbers, type of packaging, package sizes, sell by dates, and the brand name of each product at the FDA web site. The brandnames are generic, Crazy Fresh/Quick&Easy/Plain Label, Crazy Fresh, and Quick&Easy/Plain. These products were sold in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, and Wyoming.

The recalled products include Short Cut Stir Fry Blend, Riced Broccoli, Fresh Veggie Value Bowl, Veggie Tray with Radishes, Veggie Blend with Dip, Tomato, Carrot, Broccoli & Snap Pea, and Broccoli & Cauliflower With Butter, among others. Some products are packed in steamer bags, others plastic bags, and still others clear plastic containers.

Look at the recall list carefully. If you did buy any of these recalled items, don’t eat them, even if you plan to cook them. Throw them away in a secure garbage can, sealed so other people and animals can’t access them, or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund. Retailers have been asked to remove these recalled products immediately.

You should then clean out your fridge and/or freezer with a solution of 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to one gallon of warm water to kill any remaining bacteria. Listeria monocytogenes grows at temperatures below 40°F, and freezing doesn’t kill it.

If you ate these vegetable products, monitor your health for possible symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. The elderly, children, and people with weakened immune systems, along with pregnant women, are most susceptible to serious complications from this infection. If you do feel ill with the flu, or if you develop a headache, fever, nausea, and diarrhea, see your doctor.
