Twin City Foods, Inc. recalls frozen corn and mixed vegetables sold nationwide
Twin City Foods, Inc is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of Super Sweet Cut Corn and Mixed Vegetables in retail bags, due to the possibility of contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although 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.
The following products were distributed nationwide by the following retailers. No other products have been affected.
- FOOD LION Mixed Vegetables Carrots, Corn, Green Beans & Peas
- FOOD LION Super Sweet Cut Yellow Corn
- Kroger Mixed Vegetables Carrots, Super Sweet Corn, Green Beans & Green Peas
