Eat Your Vegetables (Unless They’ve Been Recalled)

| (Google+)

BroccoliHow many times were you told to eat your vegetables when growing up? If you are anything like me, it was a phrase you heard frequently.

Kids today may have an easy out though — at least when the veggie in question is broccoli. Taylor Farms Pacific has announced a recall of a wide array of products containing broccoli due to the results of a test for listeria.

So what is listeria? The Sun Herald of South Mississippi gives us the explains:

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Fortunately, there have been no reports of infection due to listeria as of yet. The recall was spurred by a test sample that gave positive results for the organism.

Food Safety News lists the affected products — many of them sold through Safeway (which has issued its own recall), Vons, Pavilions, and Pak N’ Save:

— TFarms, Snack Pot Penne Alfredo 8/10.75 oz Tray
— Raley’s, Asian Pasta Toss 1/12 oz Tray
