Just two months after a frozen food recall due to listeria contamination, another major frozen vegetable supplier has announced a separate recall, which includes products from major chains, including Target and Walmart.
According to Self, CRF Frozen foods initially announced a recall of 358 frozen fruit and vegetable products in April 2016, over a listeria contamination which was linked to at least eight illnesses and two deaths. Then, just two months later, another company issued a separate recall over the same concern.
The National Frozen Food Corp. announced a recall of their own over listeria concerns, as Consumerist reports.
The company issued a precautionary recall of their frozen peas and frozen mixed vegetables after finding that some of their products were at risk of being contaminated by listeria monocytogenes.
“The frozen green peas and frozen mixed vegetables are being recalled as a precaution with the health and safety of consumers as top priority,” Nation Frozen Food Corp. said in a statement.
The recall includes products from store brands of major chains, including Target’s Market Pantry and Walmart’s Great Value, as well as Bountiful Harvest, First Street, Live Smart, and Sprout. The products recalled were sold between September 2, 2015, and June 2, 2016.
Fortunately, no illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled products at this point.
Anybody with a product they believe has been recalled is urged by the National Frozen Foods Corporation to either throw the product away or return it to the store for a full refund. Customers with questions can call the company’s hotline at 1-800-253-8269.

According to Self, symptoms of listeria food poisoning include fever, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and weakness. In some cases, symptoms can take effect weeks after ingesting the bacteria.
