First, Russ Davis Wholesale is recalling “Crazy Fresh” produce items over possible contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. However, this recall is in response to Mann Packaging’s enormous initial recall on November 3, which also listed potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination, and basically extends it, adding more foods to the list. Mann Packaging is an ingredient provider to Russ Davis Wholesale.
While no reports of Listeria related illnesses have been received, the recall currently spans eleven U.S. states where the products were delivered to retail locations: North Dakota, Minnesota, Illinois, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, Nebraska, Indiana, Michigan, Iowa, and Montana.
The recalled products that are listed (to date) for this extension of the Mann Packing recall are broccoli, cauliflower & carrots, tomatoes, snap peas, veggie trays with dip, ranch veggie dip, riced broccoli and veggie bowls, packaged in steamer bags and plastic containers bearing the labels “Crazy Fresh” and “Quick&Easy”, and stores that have received the products have been instructed to remove them from the shelves. Consumers are urged to throw any affected produce away. A complete list of Russ Davis Wholesale product recall, with dates and packaging, can be seen below.
It’s important to recognize that this list is only secondary to the original recall reported just days ago. Anyone with questions may contact the company at: email@example.com or call 877-433-2173 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Central.
Another Listeria recall has hit the public in the form of pizza toppings. Ezzo Sausage Company is recalling over 25,000 pounds of meat following a test that found listeria monocytogenes contamination. The meats included sliced pepperoni, sausage and chopped pepperoni. The recalled products were made Oct. 29-30 but some were also produced on November 5.
Again, there are, so far, no known reports of illness due to the affected products, but the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service is still concerned that some of the known meats remain in distribution centers, restaurants, and other institutions. All restaurants and institutions that bought the products are urged to throw them away or return them. The establishment number for the product on the USDA label is “EST. 1838A.”
