Recall – Frozen Green Beans And Frozen Mixed Vegetables Because of Possible Health Risk

St. Geo, GND  National Frozen Foods Corporation (NFFC) is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of Not-Ready-To Eat Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) green beans and IQF mixed vegetables because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 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.

However, following the cooking instructions listed on the labels of master cases or packages will effectively reduce the risk of exposure to this bacterium.

While the products have been widely distributed throughout the United States of America, Grenada Bureau of Standards is currently investigating whether any of the products have been imported into Grenada.

The recalled items can be identified by the date codes printed on the back of the 32oz. sized bag or the side of the master case. Only the following codes are affected by this recall:

The recall was initiated based on a 3rd party test result of the IQF Green Beans only by a downstream customer that revealed that the finished products may potentially be contaminated with the bacteria. There has been no report of human illness to date. The frozen green beans and frozen mixed vegetables are being recalled as a precaution with the health and safety of consumers as top priority and in full cooperation with the FDA. The recall has not yet been classified by the FDA.

Consumers should not consume these products.

Grenada Bureau of Standards is asking the public to report any findings of these products.
