Country Fresh Recalls Products Due to Possible Health Risk


Food Recall Attorney

Texas-based Country Fresh, LLC, is recalling thousands of fresh-cut vegetable products across nine states due to a potential Listeria contamination.

About the Country Fresh Vegetable Recall

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Country Fresh, LLC, is recalling 30,000 cases of various fresh-cut vegetable products due to a potential contamination. The contamination was uncovered during a routine test taken at a retail store by the Georgia Department of Agriculture.

The recalled product tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterial organism that can cause serious infections in young children, elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems.

Consumers who have purchased any of the recalled vegetable products are asked to return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers should not consume these products due to the risk of infection.
