On Thursday, the National Frozen Food Corporation announced that they would be recalling one of their popular products. The recall was due to the discovery of a listeria contamination.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that a variety of frozen green beans as well as some other vegetable products were being recalled. The recall stretches to seven different brands and 21 different states.
The FDA said that the products “have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.”
They continued, “Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.”
The frozen green beans and vegetables were distributed to the following states:
Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.
The following brands were a part of the recall:
Bountiful Harvest Foundations and Originals, Monarch, NW Treasure, Simplot Classic, Sysco Classic and Imperial, Valamont, and The World’s Harvest. There were several other “cut green beans” with no brand names
Below is the list of the brands with the code numbers:
