After a random sample tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, Country Fresh, LLC., of Conroe, Texas, has issued a voluntary recall of 30,000 cases of freshly-cut vegetable products.
With 45 different products distributed to nine different states and to eight different retailers (including Wal-Mart, Publix and QuikTrip), “the company has ceased distribution of the affected product as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Country Fresh continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.”
Affected products have best-by-dates between August 7th and August 19th of this year, and were distributed to Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
