Courtesy Gills Onions Oxnard, Calif.-based Gills Onions LLC is voluntarily recalling 2,360 pounds of diced red onions after a random sample taken by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency tested positive for listeria.

The onions were distributed to Canadian retailers plus retailers and food service distributors in California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Idaho, Texas, Illinois, Michigan, Arkansas, Ohio, Tennessee, New Jersey, Georgia and Florida, according to a news release.

No illnesses have been reported. Affected product recently passed use-by dates.

Recalled product sold at retail was packaged in a 7-ounce clear plastic clam-shell with a May 17 use-by date and the lot code 51RDA1A2119 stamped on the Universal Product Code label. The UPC number in Canada is 643550000450; in the U.S., it’s 643550000412. Because the UPC number also appears on other products, the company is advising customers to identify it by the lot code.

Food-service product was packaged in 5-pound clear plastic bags, identified as Gills Onions Diced Red Onions. It had expiration dates of May 14 or May 15. The lot code, 51RDA1A2119, is stamped on the bag and box.

Gills Onions notified all customers who received the recalled lot directly from the company and requested that they remove it from stock, according to the release. The company also asked its customers to notify their customers.
