Post by: NedF on May 06, 2016, 06:26:35 PM
The CRF Frozen Foods company, which makes products sold at Safeway, Costco, and Trader Joe's, among others, has issued a recall of over 350 frozen fruit and vegetable products due to potential listeria contamination.

"This expanded recall of frozen vegetables includes all of the frozen organic and traditional fruit and vegetable products manufactured or processed in CRF Frozen Foods’ Pasco facility since May 1, 2014. All affected products have the best by dates or sell by dates between April 26, 2016 and April 26, 2018. These include approximately 358 consumer products sold under 42 separate brands, the details of which are listed below. Products include organic and non-organic broccoli, butternut squash, carrots, cauliflower, corn, edamame, green beans, Italian beans, kale, leeks, lima beans, onions, peas, pepper strips, potatoes, potato medley, root medley, spinach, sweet potatoes, various vegetable medleys, blends, and stir fry packages, blueberries, cherries, cranberries, peaches, raspberries, and strawberries."

I had a couple of the recalled bags in my freezer so I thought I'd give everyone a heads up.

Thanks for this link, Ned. We had some of those frozen veg in our freezer too.

Pictsweet is issuing a recall related to the CRF recall:

http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499946.htm (http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm499946.htm)

"The Pictsweet Company is voluntarily recalling certain frozen vegetable products because they contain Green Beans or Green Peas recently recalled by CRF Frozen Foods, a Pictsweet ingredient supplier.

On May 5th CRF Frozen Foods informed Pictsweet they were initiating a recall on all lots of Green Beans and Green Peas supplied to Pictsweet due to the potential risk they may contain Listeria monocytogenes (Lm),an organism that is widespread in the environment. Lm can contaminate food and cause mild to severe illness to persons who consume food containing Lm. Persons at greatest risk are newborn infants, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems."

The extended list includes their mixed vegetables and other blended vegetable products.
