We all know that we should be eating more veggies. They’re supposedly healthy and have all the right nutrients. But according to the latest news, eating veggies might not be the best idea.

Before you crack open those veggies, make sure that they’re not affected by the latest recall. This recall includes vegetable products sold by Archer Farms, Trader Joe’s, HEB, Little Salad Bar, Mann, Signature Farms, Cross Valley Farms, and Sysco Natural.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency found a single positive test for Listeria in their tests. No illnesses have been reported, but the vegetables are being recalled as a preventative measure.

The products are vegetables packaged by Mann Packing. The “best if used by” date on them is between October 11 and October 20. Full details for the recalls can be found here.

Listeria is an extremely dangerous organism that can cause symptoms of sickness in healthy people. This is especially dangerous for children, elderly, and pregnant women.

If you have purchased any of the recalled products, you have been urged not to consume them. Instead, discard them or return them for a full refund. If you have any questions, contact Mann Packing at 888-470-2681 or visit veggiesmadeeasy.com/products.
