Trader Joe’s, Green Giant Vegetables Recalled Due to Listeria

Biddleford, ME—Vegetables sold under the brands Green Giant, Trader Joe’s, and Signature Farms have been recalled, according to a press release posted by FDA.

The products are labeled with a “Best If Used By” date of June 26-June 29, 2019.

Tom Byrne, president of Growers Express, said in the release: “We self-reported the need for this recall to the U.S. FDA and stopped production immediately after being notified of a single positive sample by the Massachusetts Department of Health.
