PASCO, Wa. (CBSLA.com) — A Washington-based company is voluntarily recalling frozen vegetables over concerns the products may be contaminated with listeria.
CRF Frozen Foods announced the recall Saturday of fifteen frozen vegetable items after routine testing by state health officials discovered the presence of listeria monocytogenes in organic petite green peas and white sweet cut corn.
Listeria infections, according to the FDA, can cause short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea in those who are healthy. Among pregnant women, listeria infections though can cause miscarriages and stillbirths.
No illnesses have been reported to date.
The FDA says the recalled items were distributed to stores between Sept. 15, 2015 and March 16, 2016 in California and other states.
Those who purchased the products are urged to return them to the store where they bought them for a refund or discard them.
