There’s a bad news alert for customers that have been relying on Costco for all of their frozen vegetable needs. It seems that this week, an entire line of frozen vegetables was recalled due to a possible listeria contamination. The brand in question happens to be CRF Frozen Foods, with their frozen mixed vegetables, green peas, and sweet corn all being recalled. If CRF Frozen Foods doesn’t ring a bell with you, then you may recognize the brand by their different names such as True Goodness By Meijer, Wellsley Farms Organic, Organic By Nature, Organic By Nature – Canada, and Schwan’s.
A long list of states happen to be affected by this recall, some of which include: Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and West Virginia. You can find a complete list of the affected states on the FDA’s official site. The Canadian provinces that happen to be affected are: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. Luckily for all those in the affected areas, the recall was simply a precaution as the frozen vegetables could have possibly been contaminated. Listeria is a serious problem for women who are pregnant, the elderly, and those who may have a compromised immune system.
So far there have been no reported incidents of listeria contamination from anyone. The symptoms of listeria include vomiting, fever, and diarrhea. If you happen to be experiencing these symptoms contact a medical professional.
