Frozen Vegetables Recalled Due to Possible Listeria Contamination
If you were planning on cracking open some frozen veggies for dinner tonight, make sure to check the label: CRF Frozen Foods has recalled 15 frozen vegetable products due to potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. As the company states on its website, the organism can lead to serious health risks among young children, the elderly, those with weak immune systems and pregnant women.
The recall covers a variety of organic frozen vegetables — organic petite greens peas, organic white sweet corn, organic mixed vegetables, organic green peas, organic vegetable medley with shelled edamame, organic white supersweet corn, and organic SS yellow and white cut corn — sold under labels including True Goodness by Meijer, Wellsley Farms Organic, Organic by Nature, Organic by Nature – Canada, and Schwan’s. The items were distributed to retailers between September 13, 2015 and March 16th, 2016 in multiple states, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. You can see a complete list of the products to look for, along with their UPC codes and “use by” dates, here.
While no illnesses have been reported, CRF urges customers to either return the recalled products to the store they purchased them from for a refund or throw them away.
