More vegetables recalled over Listeria worry
Russ Davis Wholesale (RDW), a leading fresh produce processor and distributor, in an abundance of caution is voluntarily recalling multiple products due to possible contamination of Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
This recall is in response to Mann Packaging, Inc. initiating a recall late in the day November 3, 2019 as an ingredient provider to Russ Davis Wholesale.
To date, Russ Davis Wholesale has not received any reported illnesses related to this organism.
