January 20, 2015 — Inventure Foods, Inc. has issued a recall for Rader Farms frozen smoothie mixes sold at Costco and Walmart because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
None of the products that were shipped to stores tested positive for Listeria, nor have any confirmed illnesses been traced to this product. The recall includes the following products:
- Fresh Start Smoothie Blend
- Fresh Start Sunrise Refresh Fusion
- Fresh Start Daily Power Fusion
The recalled products did not actually test positive for Listeria, but Listeria was discovered on spinach and/or kale ingredients that were supplied by an outside party and used in the smoothie mix.
The Fresh Start Smoothie Blend was sold in 3-lb packages at Costco grocery stores in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan of Canada.
The Fresh Start Sunrise Refresh Fusion and Fresh Start Daily Power Fusion products were sold in 35 oz. packages at Walmart in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
Rader Farms says the recall is “precautionary,” but they urge consumers to destroy the product or return it to the store for a full refund.
Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that is naturally found in soil, water, and dust. It can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, older adults, and people with frail immune systems.
