Growers Express Issues Vegetable Recall Due to Listeria Risk

The company's brands include Green Giant, Signature Farms, and Trader Joe's.

Growers Express

Manufacturer Growers Express has issued a voluntary recall on packaged vegetables due to a possible Listeria contamination, the Food and Drug Administration said on Monday. Packages of butternut squash, cauliflower, zucchini, and vegetable bowls from the brands Green Giant, Trader Joe’s and Signature Farms have been affected.

The products were produced at a factory in Biddeford, Maine, and were distributed to grocery stores across the United States, primarily in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Maine. The full list of stores and states impacted can be found here. Most of the potentially contaminated products have “Best if Used By” dates between June 26 and 29, 2019.
  • Green Giant Fresh Butternut Squash Cubes
  • Green Giant Fresh Butternut Squash Noodles
  • Green Giant Fresh Butternut Squash Diced
  • Green Giant Fresh Cauliflower Crumbles Fried Rice Blend
  • Green Giant Fresh Ramen Soup Bowl
  • Green Giant Fresh Sweet Potato Cauliflower Crumbles
  • Green Giant Fresh Zucchini Noodles
  • Signature Farms Cauliflower Crumbles
  • Trader Joe’s Butternut Squash Spirals

“The safety of our consumers is our first priority,” said Tom Byrne, President of Growers Express in a statement. “We self-reported the need for this recall to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and stopped production immediately after being notified of a single positive sample by the Massachusetts Department of Health. We are deep sanitizing the entire facility and our line equipment, as well as conducting continued testing on top of our usual battery of sanitation and quality and safety tests before resuming production.”

If you’ve purchased any of the recalled products, the FDA urges customers to not consume them and throw them away.
