FDA updates risk level of recalled potato products

The risk level of more than 10,000 recalled potato products has been updated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to multiple reports.

Veggies Made Great brand Broccoli Cheddar Breakfast Potato Bakes have been updated to a Class II risk, defined by the FDA as capable of causing “temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences,” according to reports by Newsweek and msn.com.

The product was voluntarily recalled in early May because of potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination, according to Newsweek.

There is no press release or public notice regarding the product apparent on the FDA website.

A total of 10,544 boxes of the potato bakes bearing the lot code 11724 and best-by date of Oct. 18, 2025, have been recalled, according to Newsweek. The products were sold in retail stores in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Nevada.

A Class II recall is issued for “a situation in which use of, or exposure to, a violative product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences or where the probability of serious adverse health consequences is remote,” according to the FDA.

A Class I recall is issued when there is a “reasonable probability” that use of a product could “cause serious adverse health consequences or death.” A Class III recall is issued when a product is deemed unlikely to cause any “adverse health consequences” if used.
