Frozen peas, veggies recalled
Items sold between Sept. 2 and June 2 may be contaminated with Listeria
National Frozen Foods Corporation is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of Not-Ready-To Eat frozen green peas and frozen mixed vegetables because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria. 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 peas and frozen mixed vegetables are being recalled as a precaution with the health and safety of consumers as top priority. The recall was the result of a sample tested by the company which revealed that the finished products may potentially be contaminated with the bacteria. The Food and Drug Administration has been made aware of this recall. There have been no reported illnesses attributed to the recalled items to date.
The products being recalled were distributed in retail stores nationwide between Sept. 2, 2015, and June 2, 2016.
The recalled items can be identified by the date codes printed on the back of the retail sized bag or the side of the master case.
Consumers who purchased affected products may return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
