Wegmans adds salad bar items to Mann Packing recall
Wegmans has notified customers that two products available at its in-store salad bars are involved in a national recall of Mann Packing Co. products due to concerns of listeria contamination.
In a notice on the Wegmans website and the Food and Drug Administration’s recall page, the retailer listed Veggie Power Blend and Tofu Shiitake Slaw as two items involved in the recall of more than 100 products processed by Mann Packing.
The salad blends were available at Wegmans “self-serve cold bar” from Sept. 29 to Nov. 4, the day the retailer updated its website with the information. The FDA notice was posted Nov. 5.
The notice does not say how many Wegmans stores stocked the two products on the salad bars.
The Mann Packing recall was triggered by a Canadian Food Inspection Agency test of a bag of Sweet Kale Blend at a Sobeys in Canada. The CFIA on Oct. 30 issued a recall of the Compliments brand product, which is a Sobeys private label brand, due to presence of Listeria monocytogenes. On Nov. 1 , the CFIA recalled five more Compliments brand products.
A spokeswoman with the CFIA said Mann Packing was the supplier of the recalled Compliments products.
Mann Packing issued its own recall of more than 100 products in the U.S. and Canada after being notified by the CFIA and FDA of the potential listeria contamination.
No illnesses have been linked to the recalls.
