The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced a recall of several popular frozen vegetal products throughout the country.

The FDA announced this week that National Frozen Foods Corporation is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of “Not-Ready-To-Eat Individually Quick Frozen” (IQF) green beans and IQF mixed vegetables due to a possible Listeria monocytogenes outbreak.

Officials said that tests on the products manufactured between Aug. 18 last year and Jan. 12 this year are among those recalled. No illnesses have been reported.

“The frozen green beans and frozen mixed vegetables are being recalled as a precaution with the health and safety of consumers as top priority and in full cooperation with the FDA. The recall has not yet been classified by the FDA.”

According to the FSIS, consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.

“Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and persons with weakened immune systems.”
