Dozens of nationally distributed prepped fresh vegetable products, from meal bowls to cole slaw to veggie trays, are being voluntarily recalled for possible listeria contamination by Mann Packing of Salinas, Calif. Listeria infection can also cause fevers, headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. A list of all affected products can be found here. If you suspect that your product may be contaminated, you can check the Food and Drug Administration's full report, which has brand names, descriptions, and UPC codes.

The FDA's boiler plate definition of listeria describes it as "an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems".

Concerned customers may call Meijer at 800-543-3704. There haven't been any reported cases of people falling ill from consuming any contaminated product, but it's better to be safe than sorry, of course.

Archer Farms (Target): 12-oz. bags of broccoli slaw, broccoli cauliflower florets, broccoli medley and brussels sprouts, along with 9-oz. bags of shaved brussels sprouts, and 10-oz. bags of cauliflower florets.

High-risk groups can develop infections in the bloodstream or brain, as well as infections in bones and joints or other parts of the body, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Anyone who has purchased any of the recalled products are encouraged to discard them or return them where they were purchased for a full refund. The recall was made after a sample taken by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency tested positive for listeria monocytogenes. "This voluntary recall is a reflection of our commitment to ensuring the safety of our consumers". Pregnant women can suffer miscarriages and stillbirths.
