Frozen vegetables recalled for possible Listeria contamination
A Washington frozen food processor has issued a recall for 15 frozen vegetable products because the items could potentially be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to FDA.
No illnesses associated with the products have been reported, but CRF Frozen Foods says it is recalling the products as a precaution. The Listeria was discovered through routine testing by state health officials in Ohio.
