Ten-ounce bags of Pictsweet Steamables Seasoned Summer Vegetables were recalled due to the potential to be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes. The recall includes bags with a best buy date of 3/28/2018.

Twelve-ounce packs of Back to Nature Classic Crème Cookies were recalled because they may contain milk, an allergen that is not listed on the ingredient label. The recall includes packs with best buy dates of 9/10/2016 and 9/16/2016.

Giant hasn't received any reports of illnesses related to either product but advises customers who purchased these products should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt back to the store for a full refund.
