Massive recall of frozen fruits & veggies expands after Listeria outbreak

A food-packaging company in Washington state has expanded a voluntary recall to encompass nearly 360 different organic and non-organic frozen fruits and vegetables that may be contaminated with the deadly Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

On Tuesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the outbreak, which has hospitalized eight people across three states.

The products in question are frozen fruits and vegetables from 42 different brands that were packaged at CRF Frozen Foods of Pasco, Wash., and sold at popular grocery stores such as Trader Joe’s and Costco in all 50 U.S. states and some parts of Canada.

The Food and Drug Administration released a full list of the recalled products on its website, which includes 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, and various vegetable medleys, blends, and stir fry packages, as well as blueberries, cherries, cranberries, peaches, raspberries and strawberries.
