Stop & Shop is recalling 16-ounce packages of Private Brands Frozen Broccoli Cuts due to the discovery of listeria in a sample of the product.

The Foods and Standards Division of the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection detected Listeria Monocytogenes during routine testing of the broccoli from the Stop & Shop at 1739 Ellington Road in South Windsor.

Stop & Shop immediately issued a voluntary recall, according to the Department of Consumer Protection.

"We are incredibly proud that our staff was able to catch this during a routine sampling," said Consumer Protection commissioner Michelle Seagull.

The recalled packages include the code UPC 068826700926 and code BEST BY MAR 15 2020.

Customers may return the packages for a full refund.
