Bonduelle USA’s Brockport, New York production unit is recalling 9,335 cases of frozen corn because of its 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.
The product was distributed to retail stores in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Massachusetts, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Mississippi and Louisiana in polybags under four private labels, detailed as follows:
The producer, a member of the Villeneuve d’Ascq, France-headquartered Bonduelle Group, has thus far received no complaints in relation to these products, and is not aware of any illnesses associated with them.
The recall was the result of random testing of retail packs in Tennessee, which proved positive for Listeria monocytogenes. Bonduelle has ceased distribution of the product and is cooperating with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to determine what caused the problem.
Consumers who purchased the frozen corn identified above are urged to throw it away. Questions regarding refunds may be put to the company by phoning +1-877-990-2662, Monday to Friday, from 0900 to 1600 EST.
