  • Mann's Broccoli Cole Slaw is one of more than 2 dozen products being recalled

The FDA announced Thursday that Mann Packing of Salina, California, has recalled several vegetable products due to possible listeria contamination.

Short-term symptoms of listeria include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

If you picked up some vegetables in the past few weeks or so, then you should double check to see if your purchases ended up in this massive recall.

According to the FDA, listeria can cause serious illness and even fatalities in young children, the elderly and those with a weak immune system.

Albertsons, Randalls, Tom Thumb stores in Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas are among the stores voluntarily recalling Ready.

H-E-B store brand Broccoli Carrots; Broccoli Cauliflower; Broccoli Florets; Broccoli Slaw; Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad; Veggie Toss Kit; Caulibit Mushroom Sauce; Caulibits Chopped Cauliflower; Cauliflower Florets; Fiesta Salad; Power Slaw; Stir Fry Medley; and Vegetable Medley. Affected products have a best by date that reads anywhere between October 11th and 20th. Listeria can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.

"As an owner of this company and a mom, providing safe and healthy foods to our consumers and their families is always our top priority", Gina Nucci, director of corporate marketing for Mann Packing, said in a statement.

About 1,600 people become infected with listeria each year, and about 260 die, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Consumers who have bought any of the food should throw it away or return it to where they bought it for a full refund. Mann Packing says it is issuing this recall in response to a single positive result found on one of its products during random sampling by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
