Listeria outbreak prompts recall of 45 varieties of fresh cut vegetables at Walmart, Publix and Winn Dixie

A listeria outbreak has resulted in a major recall of  pre-cut vegetables distributed by Texas company Country Fresh LLC. Listeria was discovered during a routine sample test at a retailer by the Georgia Department of Agriculture. A recall notice has since been posted to the Food and Drug Administration’s website stating that Country Fresh had distributed 45 varieties of fresh-cut vegetables that may be contaminated with the bacteria. That adds up to about 30,000 cases of affected product delivered to nine states and eight retailers, including Walmart, Publix, and Winn Dixie stores.

The vegetables had been packaged either in clear plastic containers or Styrofoam trays wrapped with plastic wrap. They’re stamped with best by dates ranging from August 7 to August 19. Considering the recall notice was published on August 26, it’s likely that anyone who purchased an affected product has either already consumed it or thrown it away, though consumes can return them to the store for a full refund.

The following is a list of the recalls from the FDA website:
