April 24, 2015 — Inventure Foods, Inc. has issued a recall for Fresh Frozen™ frozen vegetables and some varieties of its Jamba “At Home” smoothie kits due to possible Listeria contamination.
No reports of illness have been linked to the products, but the company “decided to err on the side of utmost caution” and issue a voluntary recall because Listeria monocytogenes was identified within a facility in Jefferson, Georgia.
The affected products have best-by dates from March 18, 2016 through October 17, 2016 with code dates between 72644AH01 and 71075AH01.
The recalled Jamba “At Home” smoothie kits were only sold east of the Mississippi River.
Dozens of recalled Fresh Frozen vegetable products were sold at retailers and supermarkets in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
This is the second recall from Inventure Foods in the last three months. In January, the Phoenix-based company also recalled its Radar Farms Fresh Start Smoothie Blend, Fresh Start Sunrise Refresh Fusion and Fresh Start Daily Powder Fusion due to possible contamination with Listeria.
Infections with Listeria can be life-threatening, especially for young children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems. The FDA warns:
“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.”
