VIRGINIA (WJZ) — A company is voluntarily recalling bags of green beans and butternut squash sold at Southeast Walmarts after concerns about listeria.
Southern Specialties, Inc. of Pompano Beach, Florida is recalling the Marketside brand of those vegetables because they may have been contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.
Most of the contaminated product was retrieved before it was sent to Walmart’s distribution centers, but some product shipped on February 17 may have reached select stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
None of the products have tested positive for listeria.
