Core Tip: The listeria was discovered through routine testing by Ohio state health officials.
Washington-based CRF Frozen Foods has issued a voluntary recall of 15 frozen vegetable items that may be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

No illnesses have been reported so far from product consumption, but the company has recalled the products as a precautionary measure.

The listeria was discovered through routine testing by Ohio state health officials.

Listeria monocytogenes was found to be present in one lot of individually quick frozen (IQF) organic petite green peas and one lot of IQF organic white sweet cut corn.

Carrying use-by dates on the back of the package, the recalled products were sold in plastic bags.

Among the recalled items include products by True Goodness by Meijer; Wellsley Farms Organic; Schwan's and Organic by Nature - Canada.

These frozen vegetables were distributed to retailers and distribution centres between 13 September last year and 16 March in 35 US states and in Canadian provinces British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Consumers have been urged not to consume the products and those who purchased these products could take them back to the store where they purchased them for a refund.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems.

Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhoea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
