If you're a fan of broccoli, brussels sprouts or cauliflower, you need to check your stash.

Produce packing company Mann Packing is voluntarily recalling many of its products, after a single package tested positive for listeria contamination. The recall affects dozens of products sold under the Mann name and under popular store brands including Meijer, Archer Farms, Trader Joe's, Walmart and more.

What should you look for? The products have expiration dates between October 11 and October 20, and include veggie party platters, precut cauliflower and broccoli, brussels sprouts, and more. So far, no illnesses have been reported due to contaminated food, but the company is doing a voluntary recall in the hopes of avoiding illness, "out of an abundance of caution." Listeria can be especially dangerous to pregnant women, so if you're expecting be especially careful about this recall.

You can find the names of the affected products for Meijer and for the other brands on the FDA website. If you find you have some of the products in your fridge, you can take them back to the store where you purchased them for a full refund.

Please date the recall notice so we know if it is current. This applies especially to food items such as fresh fruits, veggies, and meats. This is a great public service. Thank you
