Albertsons banners join Mann Packing recall in 16 states
Albertsons has recalled more than 70 fresh-cut vegetable items in relation to a Mann Packing Co. recall, including salad bar items, over concerns of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
Sobeys stores in Canada and Wegmans stores have also issued recalls, along with Mann Packing, which processed the items for the retailers’ private labels. Sobeys issued recalls on Oct. 30 and Nov. 1 after a bag of Sweet Kale Blend, tested by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, tested positive for listeria.
After being alerted by the Canadian agency and the Food and Drug Administration, Mann Packing issued a recall for more than 100 stock-keeping units on Nov. 3. Wegmans issued a recall Nov. 4, and Albertsons did the same Nov. 5.
Also on Nov. 5, GHNW LLC of Clackamas, Ore., recalled 10-ounce trays of Mushroom Stiry Fry Blend and 16-ounce trays for Stir Fry Blend. Both contain Broccoli Slaw from Mann Packing, according to a notice on the FDA recall site. The two products were sold at QFC and/or Fred Meyer stores in Washington and Oregon.
No illnesses have been linked to any of the recalled products.
Albertsons’ banners involved in the recall include Alberstsons, Safeway, Vons, Pak N Save, Amigos, Randalls, Tom Thumb and Haggen stores, according to a recall notice on the retailer’s website.
The recalled products went to stores in: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wyoming.
Many of the recalled products are blends, mixes or prepared foods and are from the produce department, salad bar and delis. Products include quiche, stir fry mixes, vegetable trays, vegetable steam packs and snack packs with hummus, cheese and grapes.
The recall covers all production before the “sell thru date” for all items, which range from Nov. 4 to Nov. 11.
