Stop & Shop has issued a voluntary recall of its store brand frozen broccoli after regulators in Connecticut found listeria on a sample.
The recall was issued Wednesday after the state Department of of Consumer Protection's foods and standards division found the bacteria at a Stop & Shop on Ellington Road in South Windsor.
There have been no reports of illness from the broccoli.
Impacted packages of frozen broccoli are marked with UPC 068826700926 and code BEST BY MAR 15 2020. Customers with packages included in the recall may return the broccoli for a full refund.
The most commonly eaten broccoli parts are the flowering heads, (shaped like tree) coming off a thick, central, edible stalk. Broccoli contains sulforaphane, a sulfur-containing compound present in cruciferous vegetables. Researchers are studying the anti-cancer properties of sulforaphane and have come to some interesting conclusions. Also, it offers as much vitamin C as an orange, and is a good source of beta-carotene. Broccoli contains vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc too. It also provides fiber and is low in calories. Isn’t it amazing? Broccoli is indeed an all-star food with many nutrients contents that provide numerous health benefits to our body.
