Frozen veggies recalled in 21 states due to possible health risk

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
  • A severe headache
  • Stiffness
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal Pain

A Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. The recall was initiated based on a 3rd party test result of the IQF Green Beans only by a downstream customer that revealed that the finished products may potentially be contaminated with the bacteria. There has been no report of human illness to date.
