Growers Express expands fresh vegetable recall

Growers Express is expanding the list of fresh vegetable products affected by its voluntary recall that was issued July 1. After further testing of an additional product lot from the suspected source of the recall, a single retail sample was found to be positive for Listeria monocytogenes. The company has expanded the list of recalled products to include certain specific fresh Brussels sprouts, fresh cauliflower florets and fresh green beans products.

The products originated from a Growers Express production facility in Biddeford, ME, and were distributed to the states of Massachusetts and Maine. Growers Express is no longer sourcing vegetables from the suspected cause of the contamination. There are no reported illnesses to date.

No other Growers Express products are impacted or part of this expansion. This recall does notaffect or include any Green Giant canned or frozen vegetable products.

Customers have been notified to remove any remaining products from shelves and inventory.
