Giant Food said Monday it has pulled certain Pictsweet Steamables items from store shelves due to possible Listeria contamination.
The grocery chain has stopped selling Pictsweet Steamables seasoned summer vegetables, 10 oz. UPC 7056098001 with a best by date of March 28, 2018. The action comes after The Pictsweet Co. recalled the product. 
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Giant has received no reports of illnesses to date.
Customers who have purchased these products should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to Giant for a full refund.  
Consumers looking for additional information on the recall may call Pictsweet Consumer Services at 1-800-367-7412. Shoppers may also call Giant Food Customer Service at 888-469-4426 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for more information. Customers can also visit the Giant Food website.
