Veggie Patch Recalls Meatless Burger and Falafel


On November 30, 2012, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that VEGGIE PATCH® is voluntarily recalling two products because of a risk of Listeria monocytogenes contamination.  The two products are called The Ultimate Meatless Burger and Falafel.  


The VEGGIE PATCH Ultimate Meatless Burgers came in 9-ounce trays that were refrigerated and fully cooked.  The burgers had a use-by-date of January 12, 2013 and a UPC code of 6-10129-00211-5.  


The VEGGIE PATCH Falafel came in a 9-ounce tray as well and comes refrigerated and fully cooked.  The Falafels had a use-by-date of January 15, 2013 and a UPC code of 6-10129-06619-3.  


The UPC numbers are found on the back of the package.  


The Falafel recall affects the entire nation, and the products were sold up to November 21, 2012.  The Ultimate Meatless Burger was sold up to November 21, 2012, and the recall affects the following states: New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Florida, Maryland, Indiana, Wisconsin, Virginia, New Jersey, and Delaware.  


Listeria was found during routine testing, and no illnesses have been reported so far.  Listeria is an organism that is especially dangerous to young children, the elderly, and those with weak immune systems.  Healthy adults may experience symptoms like high fever, intense headaches, general stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, but more serious complications can occur.  Listeria can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.  


Consumers affected by the recall should dispose of the product immediately.  In order to arrange for a full refund, consumers need to email contactus@veggiepatch.com.  Products with a different UPC number are not affected by this recall.  All frozen Veggie Patch Burgers are not affected by this recall as well.  


If you have more questions, you can contact Veggie Patch at (888) 807-0765 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
