A Pennsylvania frozen produce company has recalled an undisclosed volume of frozen, cut green beans because of potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

frozen green beans JML logoThe recall notice from JML Ingredients Inc. of  East Petersburg, PA, is dated July 22, but it was just posted on the Food and Drug Administration’s website Thursday evening.

“The recall was the result of a routine sampling program by a manufacturer who used the product in their finished product,” according to the recall notice. “JML Ingredients has ceased the distribution of the product as FDA and the company continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.”

Although the ICAPP brand frozen green beans are packaged in 20-pound cases and were distributed to “manufacturers in Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania,” the recall notice references refunds for consumers who bought the product.

“Consumers who have purchased ICAPP (individually quick frozen cut green beans) are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund,” according to the recall notice. “Consumers with questions may contact JML Ingredients at 717-569-2141.”

The company did not name the supplier of the green beans or indicate if the recall is related to ongoing recalls of frozen vegetables because of Listeria contamination.

Listeria monocytogenes is a microscopic organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, 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.
