Listeria monocytogenes contamination might have impacted as many as 25 different GHGA ready-to-eat vegetable products, leading to a product recall affecting consumers in various states. Listeria is often the cause of recalls like this one.

GHGA sold these products via Kroger stores in Alabama, South Carolina, and Georgia. The vegetable products are already past their expiration dates, so they’re no longer available in stores. But customers might still have some at home, risking a theoretical infection with Listeria.

GHGA vegetable recall

The company issued the vegetable recall action this week. The US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) press release is available at this link.

GHGA explains that its laboratory received a positive Listeria test for a single product sample on September 16th. That’s what initiated the recall.

The following list covers all 25 of the products that GHGA recalled:

All the GHGA vegetable products in this recall have now expired, as shown in the list above. But Kroger has been selling them since September 11th. As a result, buyers might still have some at home in their refrigerators or freezers.

GHGA says it has not received any reports of illness connected with the recall. But symptoms can sometimes appear several weeks after eating contaminated products. Also, the theoretical risk of infection remains for those who still have GHGA products from the recall at home.

Listeria illness

People who consume food products containing this bacteria risk developing listeriosis. Healthy individuals usually experience short-term symptoms, including high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.

But young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems risk complications. Moreover, pregnant women can experience miscarriages and stillbirths. Newborn babies are also at risk of infection.
