Mann Packing, a leading vegetable supplier in California, has taken upon itself to recall its products that might have been contaminated with listeria.
According to reports, Mann Packing’s decision to recall its products has affected the stocks of multiple supermarkets across USA and Canada, including Walmart, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Meijer, Albertson’s and Safeway.
While there have been no illnesses linked to the recalled products, which were listed as “best if used by” October 11 to October 20, Mann Packing decided to pull out the products after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency picked up their contamination risk, thanks to its random sampling.
According to Food Safety, listeria is a type of bacteria found either in soil or water. However, it can also be present in some animals, especially in poultry animals and cattle. It can also be found in raw milk and food products made from which, and even in food processing plants where it can contaminate processed meats.
Unlike other bacteria, listeria displays a certain extent of resilience as it can even grow in cold temperatures, and the only way to kill it is through cooking and pasteurization.
Reports claim that, based on the records of U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 1,600 people in the United States get infected with listeria each year and around 260 from those infected dies. Although the symptoms of the bacteria are similar…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
