July 5, 2022 — Vidalia onions were recalled from certain Wegmans, Publix and Sam’s Club stores in multiple states due to a risk of Listeria contamination.
On July 1, A&M Farms of Lyons, Georgia recalled whole Vidalia onions that were packed between June 20 and June 23, 2022.
No illnesses were reported, but Listeria was discovered on the packing line, so there is a risk of cross-contamination.
The recalled onions may have been sold in the bulk produce sections of Wegmans, Sam’s Club, and Publix stores in Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Georgia, New York, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania.
Wegmans sold the onions on June 23 and 24 at stores in Massachusetts; Rochester, New York area; and Erie, Pennsylvania. They were sold by the pound and have PLU 4159 on the Little Bear® brand tag.
Publix sold the onions from June 22-24 at all locations in Floria and certain locations in Georgia. They were sold by the pound and have PLU 4159 on the Little Bear® brand tag.
Sam’s Club claims it destroyed the recalled onions before they got to stores. But, just in case, the recalled onions were sold in 6-pound bags under the Why FFA Matters® brand, Lot No. CHW032A.
