NFFC Recalls Frozen Green Beans and Mixed Vegetables
Seattle, Washington-headquartered National Frozen Foods Corporation (NFFC) is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of not-ready-to eat frozen green beans and mixed vegetables because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The pathogenic bacteria may cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
The products were distributed in 32-ounce poly bags and bulk packs to foodservice customers in 21 states between August 18, 2017 and January 12, 2018, under the following labels: Bountiful Harvest, Monarch, NW Treasure, Simplot Imperial, Valamont, the World’s Harvest. In addition, some quantities were shipped in generic packaging without brand names.
Following cooking preparation instructions on the labels of master cases or individual packages will effectively reduce the risk of exposure to Listeria monocytogenes. That said, it is recommended that the products not be consumed but instead returned to place of purchase for a full refund.
Lot and specific code details are available by telephoning 1-800-253-8269, Monday – Friday, 7:30 AM to 4 PM (Pacific Time).
