Default Recalls of Frozen Vegetables, Frozen Fruit, and Other Products

http://www.foodsafety.gov/recalls/recent/listeria.html

Since March 2016, CDC has been collaborating with the USDA, FDA, and public health officials in several states to investigate a multistate outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes infections. Epidemiologic and laboratory evidence available at this time indicates that frozen vegetables produced by CRF Frozen Foods are one likely source of illness in this outbreak.
On May 2, 2016, CRF Frozen Foods recalled all organic and traditional frozen vegetable and fruit products processed in its Pasco, Washington facility since May 1, 2014. Due to this recall, many other companies have recalled hundreds of other products sold under dozens of brand names. Continue to check this webpage for a complete list of recalled products associated with this investigation.
What to Know

Listeriosis is a life-threatening infection caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium (germ) Listeria monocytogenes. The disease primarily affects pregnant women and their newborns, adults older than 65, and people with immune systems weakened by cancer, cancer treatments, or other serious conditions (like diabetes, kidney failure, liver disease, and HIV).
A person with Listeriosis usually has fever and muscle aches, sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. However, the symptoms vary with the infected person:
  • Adults older than 65 and people with weakened immune systems: Symptoms can include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions.
  • Pregnant women: Pregnant women typically experience only fever and other non-specific symptoms like chills and headache. However, infection during pregnancy can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or life-threatening infection of the newborn.
  • Healthy people: Healthy people rarely develop invasive Listeriosis. However, people exposed to a very large dose of Listeria bacteria can develop a non-invasive illness (meaning the bacteria do not spread into their bloodstream or other sites) with diarrhea and fever.
We recommend that consumers not eat recalled products.

  • The recalled products were distributed nationwide and in Canada under many different brand names.
Follow these steps if recalled products are in your home:

  • Throw the recalled products away in a closed plastic bag placed in a sealed trashcan. This will prevent people and animals from eating it.
  • Wash the refrigerator or freezer area and any other areas where the recalled products were stored with hot water and soap.
  • Wash your hands with warm water and soap after cleaning up.
What should you do if you ate recalled products?

  • If you have eaten recalled products and do not have any symptoms, most experts believe that tests or treatment are not needed, even for people at higher risk for Listeriosis.
  • People who develop symptoms of Listeriosis after eating possibly contaminated products should consider seeking medical care and telling a healthcare provider about eating that product. Although people can sometimes develop Listeriosis up to 2 months after eating contaminated food, symptoms usually start within several days.
