Little Bear brand Vidalia onions sold at Publix are being recalled because they could be contaminated with listeria.
The onions were sold June 22-24 in the produce section of Publix stores in Florida and Georgia, according to the FDA.
No other onions are involved in the recall.
The FDA said there have been no illnesses or adverse events reported. The recall comes after internal testing detected listeria on a song pack line, the FDA said.
The company said it cleans and sanitizes its pack lines regularly and is recalling the products out of an abundance of caution.

“The health and safety of consumers are our top priorities here at A&M Farms. We are glad that most of the implicated product never reached stores, but we are focused intently on alerting consumers in those areas that did receive the onions,” said Aries Haygood, co-owner of A&M Farms. “We stopped packing on the implicated line, and I am personally overseeing a full cleaning and sanitation of the equipment and an internal review of our processes.”
Anyone who has the recalled product in their possession should not consume it. The product should be disposed and may return to the place of purchase with a receipt for a refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company’s information desk at 1-912-585-2058, M-F, 8 am – 4 pm EDT.
