Frozen vegetables sold at Food Lion, Kroger recalled over listeria concerns

Frozen vegetables from Food Lion and Kroger may be contaminated with Listeria bacteria. Check your purchases and return for a refund.

Frozen vegetable bags containing the tainted product were sold at Kroger and Food Lion locations across the country.

Food Lion and Kroger are recalling bags of frozen vegetables due to concerns that they may be infected with dangerous bacteria.

Washington-based Twin City Foods Inc. voluntarily recalled a small amount of frozen sweet corn and mixed veggies “due to a potential for these products to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes,” as stated in a notification submitted by the FDA.

According to the warning, the flawed bags were sold at Food Lion and Kroger locations across the country.

Third-party lab results from a customer’s bag of sweet corn suggested the possible presence of the bacteria, prompting the recall.

No cases of illness or other problems have been reported as a result of using this product.

Please do not consume this product and bring it back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Healthy people may only experience transient symptoms like high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal discomfort, and diarrhea from a listeria infection.

However, it can lead to life-threatening infections in small children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. In pregnant women, it can increase the risk of a miscarriage or a stillbirth.
