One of the most famous grocery store chains in the country is Trader Joe's. The popular supermarket is springing up in cities all across America. Many customers are extremely loyal to the brand.

Sadly, a recall has just been announced that involves a product from Trader Joe's. Now, some customers are checking their shelves and trying to make sure they are not at any risk.

"A vegetable company has issued a recall for fresh products including butternut squash, zucchini and butternut squashed-based veggie bowl that was distributed to popular retailers like Trader Joe’s and Shaws. Growers Express said the recall, which includes select Green Giant Fresh and Trader Joe’s labeled products, is out of an abundance of caution after it discovered potential listeria contamination," according to Fox.

The products mainly include a “Best If Used By” date of June 26-June 29. However, no Green Giant canned or frozen vegetables have been impacted by this development.

The veggies were sold and distributed in Connecticut, Massachusetts, South Carolina, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maine, New York, Maryland, Alabama, Washington D.C., Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont and Wisconsin.

"The products originate from a Growers Express production facility in Biddeford, Maine, and were distributed to the states referenced in the chart below,” the company said in a recall notice posted on the FDA website. “The voluntary recall was issued due to the potential for contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. There are no reported illnesses," according to reports.

The company is currently working to spread the word about this recall. They are also working to clean their facility and make sure they are okay to produce more food in the future.
