Grocery chains including Walmart, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe’s have issued a recall on certain vegetable products from packaged vegetable supplier Mann Packing.

A random sampling by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency found a single positive result for listeria, leading Mann Packing to issue a recall “out of an abundance of caution” last week.

The recall has led to several follow-up recalls at major grocers across the US.

Walmart is recalling certain bagged veggies, including broccoli and cauliflower. Trader Joe’s is recalling its Kohlrabi Salad Blend. And, Whole Foods Market is recalling certain salads from 10 stores in California.

Regional grocers have also been impacted. Meijer is recalling a long list of packed produce items. Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, and Pak N’ Save are voluntarily recalling certain fresh vegetable trays and cups in eight states. H-E-B recalled certain single-serve soups made with the vegetables.
