*** UPDATED May 10 & 13, 2016, with additional recalls ***

By Kay Whatley, Editor

Last week’s recall of frozen vegetables and fruits by CRF have led to additional recalls of prepared foods made with the frozen foods.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 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.

Frozen Foods Recalled for Listeria

As a precaution, CRF Frozen Foods of Pasco, Washington issued a voluntary recall (CRF Recall article) of frozen organic and traditional fruits and vegetables in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) because these products have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Since the frozen vegetables and fruits had been shipped to other companies for use in their prepared products, recalls have been issued by several food preparers.

Twin City Foods, Inc.

Twin City Foods, Inc. Recalls Frozen Organic Peas And Mixed Vegetables Because Of Possible Health Risk.

As part of the ongoing recall of CRF Frozen Foods vegetables, Twin City Foods, Inc. of Stanwood, Washington is voluntarily recalling items containing organic peas it received from CRF Frozen Foods.  These products include Central Market Organic Peas and Mixed Vegetables, HEB Organic Mixed Vegetables, Sweetfrost Mixed Vegetables, and Woodstock Organic Mixed Vegetables due to the potential for these products to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  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.

Voluntary Recall on Piggly Wiggly Brand Yellow Cut Corn

Released May 13, 2016, by McCall Farms via PR Newswire

As part of the CRF Frozen Foods recall, McCall Farms Incorporated is notifying consumers that it is recalling Piggly Wiggly brand frozen Yellow Cut Corn due to the potential risk that it may contain Listeria monocytogenes. McCall Farms was notified by its supplier, CRF Frozen Foods, of this potential contamination. No other McCall Farms products have been affected by this recall.

Listeria monocytongenes is an organism which can cause mild to severe illness and sometimes be fatal to persons who consume contaminated food. People at greatest risk are newborn infants, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, abdominal pain, stiffness and nausea, Listeriainfections can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Piggly Wiggly has been notified of this issue and has removed all potentially affected products from its stores.

The recall applies to:

  • Piggly Wiggly brand Frozen Yellow Cut Corn in a 2 lb bag
    UPC number: 4129075181
    Lot Code: CORN0J14FXA

In the event a consumer has this product, they are urged not to consume it and to dispose of it properly.
