Whole Foods Recalls Vegetable Products For Possible Listeria

Whole Foods recalls vegetable products made with vegetables provided by Mann Packing Co. for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. ¬†These foods were sold at the Hot Bar, Salad Bar, and one was a catering item. They may also have been available through chefs’ cases or packaged in plastic containers. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

The recalled products are listed on this page. They were sold between October 10, 2019 and November 4, 2019. The recalled items include these sold at the Salad Bar in the stores: Vegetable Power Blend, Wedge Greek Salad, Caulilini, Roasted with Roasted Garlic, Broccoli Roasted Buffalo, Slaw Coconut Citrus, Pizza Pesto Green Veggie, Tofu Salad Sweet Chile, Slaw, Brussels sprouts with Apples & Cheddar, and Broccoli Garlic Sundried Tomatoes, among others.

Foods recalled that were sold at the Hot Bar include Stir Fry Vegetable, Pasta Turkey Alfredo, Bulgogi Beef with Vegetables, Chicken General Tso, Potatoes Scalloped Broccoli & Romesco, Garbanzo Broccoli Farro, and Broccoli Charred Romesco, among others. You can see the states where these items were sold at the FDA web site.

If you bought any of these items, don’t eat them, even if you are going to heat them or cook with them first. Throw them away in a secure garbage can with a tight lid so other people and animals can’t access them. Take the receipt showing your purchase back to Whole Foods ¬†for a full refund.

You should then clean your refrigerator, or freezer, or pantry, or wherever you stored these items, with a mild bleach solution to kill any bacteria. Freezing doesn’t destroy this pathogen, and it can grow at refrigerator temperatures.

If you ate any of these produts, monitor your health for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days, especially if you have a chronic health problem or are pregnant. Pregnant women may not have a severe illness, but listeriosis can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, and infection in the newborn. Most people may have high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. If you do feel sick contact your doctor.
