Washington-based CRF Frozen Foods has issued a voluntary recall of 15 frozen vegetable items, which are suspected to have been contaminated with Listeria.

The presence of listeria was discovered during a routine testing by state health officials in Ohio.

The organism was found in one lot of Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) organic petite green peas and one lot of IQF organic white sweet cut corn.

"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 company said in a statement.

Though no illnesses have been reported so far, the company has initiated the recall as a precautionary measure.

"Consumers are urged not to consume these products. Consumers who purchased these products may take them back to the store where they purchased them for a refund or simply discard them," the statement said.

The recalled frozen vegetables were distributed to retailers and distribution centers between 13 September 2015 and 16 March 2016 across severalstates in the US.

Meanwhile, Costco Wholesale Canada has recalled Organic by Nature brand frozen Organic Sweet Peas from the marketplace due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

Consumers can identify the recalled frozen organic sweet peas by looking for the following label information: 2.5 kg and 'Best by' dates of 10-22-17; 12-03-17; 03-16-18, and UPC number 8 46355 00061.

Costco Wholesale Canada has issued its second frozen organic food recall in eight days. . Earlier, the retailer had recalled Nature's Touch brand organic berry cherry blend on 15 April.

This time, Organic by Nature brand frozen sweet peas have been recalled from locations in British Colombia, Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

The recall a day after CRF Frozen Foods recalled 15 frozen vegetable products in the US and Canada.
