June 22, 2016 — The National Frozen Food Corp. has recalled frozen peas and mixed vegetables because they may be contaminated with Listeria, a bacteria that can cause severe food poisoning.
The recall was issued after a random sample tested positive for Listeria. No illnesses have been blamed on the products, which were sold from September 2, 2015 through June 2, 2016.
Products affected by the recall:
- Bountiful Harvest Green Peas
- First Street Green Peas
- Great Value Mixed Vegetables
- Great Value Sweet Peas
- Live Smart Mixed Vegetables
- Market Pantry Mixed Vegetables
- Market Pantry Steam-in-Bag Mixed Vegetables
- Market Pantry Sweet Peas
- Sprouts Farmers Market Mixed Vegetables
Following cooking instructions on the label will reduce the risk of infection from Listeria, according to the FDA.
This is the second major frozen food recall in the last month. It appears unrelated to a recall by CRF Frozen Foods on May 2 for more than 350 products — including carrots, onions, peaches, and strawberries — that were marketed under 42 brand-names in all 50 states and Canada. At least eight illnesses have been confirmed, all resulting in hospitalizations.
Listeria monocytogenes primarily affects young children, older adults, pregnant women, and adults with pre-existing medical conditions. The symptoms can include headache, stiff neck, confusion, fever, and muscle aches. Infected pregnant women often have a miscarriage or stillbirth.
