Recall Roundup: Little Salad Bar and Mann’s Vegetable Products

Last Updated on November 28, 2018

EDITOR’S NOTE (11/28/18): We have received a lot of traffic to this page because of viral social media sharing about a listeria outbreak related to frozen vegetables from Aldi. This recall happened during the summer of 2018 and only affected grocery stores in the United Kingdom. Frozen vegetables from the United States should be safe. You can read more here

EDITOR’S NOTE (4/22/18): We have gotten a lot of traffic to this page in the wake of the romaine lettuce warnings issued in April 2018. This recall is a different story; you can read more about the romaine lettuce situation here.

UPDATE (10/23/17): This is part of a massive recall of products that includes such brands as Archer Farms, Mann, Signature Farms, and Walmart. It affects products in both the United States and Canada. You can read the entire FDA press release here.

Aldi announced earlier today a recall of a select group of products from certain stores over a possible Listeria contamination. The products are limited to a specific listing of states and products. The full list of those states and products are in the press release below.

Also, in related news, Trader Joe’s today recalled some of its salad products over a Listeria concern. Given the timing, we suspect this is not a coincidence.

  1. I have a bag of salad from Aldi that could be contaminated. I can’t tell by the bar code because only the bar code itself is printed on the bag, no numbers. It’s Little Salad Bar 12 os. plastic bag of garden salad. Since I can’t tell if it’s included in the recall, will I get credit for it if I return it to the Aldi where I purchased it? It’s fine now, but will have passed its use by date when I can take it back. Incidentally, when I went to that Aldi yesterday, ALL bags of salad were pulled, empty shelves. I didn’t know Little Salad Bar was recalled then; I had only heard about Fresh Express. Thank you and Merry Christmas.

  2. Here’s a post with information about the recall you’re referencing. Hopefully it helps you determine whether your salad is affected.
