The following products are included in the recall:

  • Green Giant Fresh® Cauliflower Crumbles “Fried Rice” Blend
  • Green Giant Fresh® Cauliflower Sweet Potato Crumbles
  • Green Giant Fresh® Butternut Diced
  • Green Giant Fresh® Butternut Cubed

  • Growers Express® Butternut Peeled
  • Signature Farms® Cauliflower Crumbles

The items were sold at certain Trader Joe’s, Stop & Shop, Shaws, Ruby Robinson (PFG), Procacci, Native Maine, Four Seasons, Food Lion, C&S, Bozzutos, and Big Y Foods.

Most of the items have a “Best If Used By” dates between June 26 and June 29, 2019.

Symptoms may include a high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
