Mann Packing vegetable products sold at Trader Joe's and Wal-Mart throughout the US and Canada with "best if used by" dates ranging from October 11 to October 20 are affected by the voluntary recall.

The affected products include Mann's Family Favorites Broccoli Florets, Vegetable Medley, Brussels Sprouts and many more minimally processed vegetable products.

The products were distributed with the "best if used by" dates of October 11-20, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration report.

A nationwide veggie recall has hit Walmart, Trader Joe's and Target, according to the Food and Drug Administration. The recall is over listeria outbreak concerns, as a random sampling of some of Mann Packing's products tested positive for the bacteria.

"Mann Packing is issuing this recall out of an abundance of caution", the company stated in the release. They were sold at retailers across the USA and Canada including Walmart, Safeway, and Trader Joe's.
