CT Included In Nationwide Recall of Frozen Vegetables
Have you heard? Numerous brands of frozen vegetables have been recalled nationwide because of a serious, and sometimes fatal, contamination risk. Connecticut is on the list.
Time to check your freezer. I know mine is chock full of frozen veggies. Now, to see if I have any of the ones in question. Here's the deal.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, CRF Frozen Foods of Pasco, Washington has voluntarily recalled 15 frozen vegetable items that have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The FDA says the frozen vegetables were distributed to retailers and distribution centers between Sept. 13, 2015 and March 16 of this year in thirty five states, including Connecticut, New York and Massachusetts. The "use by" dates go into 2017 and 2018, so you really need to check the list which can be found at FDA.gov/Safety/Recalls. You can of course just throw them out, or take them back to where you bought them. The FDA also provides a phone number for further info. Better safe than sorry I always say.
