Trader Joe’s Brands Part Of Expanded Frozen Food Recall Nationwide
What was initially a recall of about a dozen different products has grown into a nationwide recall of literally hundreds of frozen food items from multiple supermarket chains.
CRF Foods has announced that they are expanding their recall on frozen food products that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Frozen vegetables and fruits with best buy dates between April 26, 2016 and April 26, 2018 are a part of the recall from the company's Pasco, Washington facility.
The facility has ceased all operations since the original recall on April 25th and a thorough review is being conducted.
358 products, under 42 different brands, like Wellesley Farms, McCain, Great Value and even Trader Joe's brands, have been affected.
Customers with potentially contaminated products are urged not to eat them, but to either return them to the store they purchased them or simply throw them away.
Listeria can be fatal in young children, frail and elderly people and can cause short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea in others. It can also lead to miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
