The recall over possibly tainted foods as widened to include more foods sold by popular stores such as Trader Joe’s, Walmart and Whole Foods.
A recall spanning several companies and affecting multiple grocery stores is sweeping the nation prompting listeria and salmonella contamination scares for millions of pounds of food.
Items potentially affected by the scare include vegetables such as corn and onions.
The ready-to-eat and premade foods are sold at retailers such as Harris Teeter, Kroger, Whole Foods, 7-Eleven, Trader Joe’s and Walmart.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture was alerted to the issue by food makers and announced the recall around Oct. 17. The vegetables were all produced by a single company called McCain Foods, according to the USDA.
