Mann's- Fiesta Vegetable Tray

Dozens of nationally distributed prepped fresh vegetable products, from meal bowls to cole slaw to veggie trays, are being voluntarily recalled for possible listeria contamination by Mann Packing of Salinas, Calif.

A complete list of Mann's recalled products is available on the Food and Drug Administration's website.

For questions about the overall recall, call Mann Packing at 1-888-470-2681, 24 hours a day.

Listeria is an organism that could cause serious and sometimes fatal infections to children, the elderly, or those with compromised immune systems. When listeria gets discovered, the recalls come in ripples as all food produced in the same facility around the same time could be infected.

"As an owner of this company and a mom, providing safe and healthy foods to our consumers and their families is always our top priority", Gina Nucci, director of Corporate Marketing, said in a statement. It includes products with "best if used by" dates of October 12-20, and other identifying factors.

Triple-B is recalling broccoli florets, stir fry kits, veggie trays with cauliflower and veggie pack combos that were sold in store delis in Alaska. Symptoms are usually reported one to four weeks after eating food contaminated with listeria, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Customers who have bought any of these packages are advised to dispose of them or bring them back to their place of purchase for a refund.

Mann Packing announced last week it was voluntarily recalling the items, distributed throughout the USA and Canada, because of a single positive result found on one product during random sampling by the Canadian Food Inspection. Listeria can cause fever and diarrhea similar to other foodborne germs, but this type of Listeria infection is rarely diagnosed.
