Massive recall issued for vegetables due to listeria

(WROC-TV) -  A massive recall was issued for vegetables sold in stores across the country.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says Mann Packing issued a voluntary recall after its minimally processed vegetable products may be contaminated with listeria.

“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,” said Gina Nucci, Director of Corporate Marketing. “This voluntary recall is a reflection of our commitment to ensuring the safety of our consumers.”

The company found a positive result on one of the products during a random sampling. So far, no reported illnesses have been connected to the products.
