A frozen foods company that sells its products nationwide is recalling 15 frozen vegetables sold under various names, citing a potential listeria contamination.
 
CRF Frozen foods is recalling green peas, mixed vegetables, white sweet corn, and several other vegetables sold  as"True Goodness" by Meijer, "Wellsley Farms Organic," "Organic by Nature," and "Schwan.”
 
The items were sold in 35 U.S. states and parts of Canada. The recall was reportedly issued after routine testing found Listeria in one lot of petite green peas and white sweet cut corn.
 
See the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's website for details regarding the recalled items.
 
The FDA describes Listeris as “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.”
