Whole Foods Markets is recalling 70 products sold on its salad and hot bars, chefs’ cases or pre-packaged in plastic containers nationwide. Products “ranging from vegetables to fish and Chinese foods” that were sold between October 10th and November 4th are being recalled over concerns that they may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.
The possibly contaminated products are listed here and include items like chicken, salmon, broccoli and cauliflower.
Concerns at Whole Foods Markets began to rise after supplier, Mann Packing Co., announced it’s recall last week of more than 100 vegetable products over contamination concerns. Whol Foods was notified by the FDA and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency about the possible contamination, which can cause serious health issues and could possibly lead to death.
There have been no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most susceptible to infection are the elderly, pregnant women and their newborns, and those with weakened immune systems.
Whole Foods customers who bought any of the items at a Whole Foods can bring the items and a valid receipt into stores for a full refund.
