Trader Joe’s recalls packaged vegetables

The vegetable products were voluntarily recalled.

Some packages of butternut squash, cauliflower, zucchini and vegetable bowls sold under the Trader Joe’s private brand and Green Giant and Signature Farms brands are being recalled.

According to CNN Health, the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) announced the vegetable products were voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer Growers Express, due to concerns about possible contamination with the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes.

Most of the potentially contaminated products have "Best if Used By" dates between June 26 and 29. No Green Giant frozen or canned vegetables are being recalled.

"Listeria is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems," said the FDA.
