Growers Express Expands Recall of Fresh Vegetable Products Due to Listeria monocytogenes

The FDA announced on its site that Growers Express had expanded the list of select fresh vegetable products affected by the recall that was issued on July 1, 2019. After further testing of an additional product lot from the suspected source of the recall, a single retail sample was found to be positive for Listeria monocytogenes. As a result, the company has expanded the list of recalled products to include certain specific fresh Brussels sprouts, fresh cauliflower florets, and fresh green beans products. The products originated from a Growers Express production facility in Biddeford, Maine and were distributed to the states of Massachusetts and Maine. Growers Express is no longer sourcing vegetables from the suspected cause of the contamination. There are no reported illnesses to date. @ https://www.fda.gov/safety/recalls-market-withdrawals-safety-alerts/growers-express-expands-voluntary-recall-select-fresh-vegetable-products-due-potential-contamination?utm_campaign=Growers%20Express%20Expands%20Voluntary%20Recall%20of%20Select%20Fresh%20Vegetable%20Products&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fda.gov/safety/recalls-market-withdrawals-safety-alerts/growers-express-expands-voluntary-recall-select-fresh-vegetable-products-due-potential-contamination?utm_campaign=Growers%20Express%20Expands%20Voluntary%20Recall%20of%20Select%20Fresh%20Vegetable%20Products&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua
