Pero Family Farms Butternut Squash Recall Updated More Run Numbers

The recall of Pero Family Farms Butternut Squash products has been updated with more product run numbers. The original recall was posted on the Publix web site.

These products were distributed in Louisiana, Florida, Texas, New York, Maine, Georgia, Ohio, Virginia, Alabama, Virginia, and Missouri. The squash is packaged in flexible clear plastic containers with labeling on the top and bottom of the contained; or in a clear plastic bag. The product run number code and the use by date are on the front bottom right hand corner of the tray package. These items were sold from January 2, 2021 through January 11, 2021.

The recall was initiated when Race West Company, a supplier of butternut squash to the company, notified them of a possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. Production has been temporarily halted until the problem is investigated.
