Ajinomoto Windsor Recall of Products Related to CRF Frozen Vegetable Recall
For Immediate Release
May 7, 2016
Consumer Affairs Hotline
Ontario, CA — Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. is voluntarily recalling various Not-Ready-To Eat frozen food items due to the potential for these products to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. This voluntary action is being undertaken in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture and the US Food and Drug Administration because the recalled products contain vegetables that are part of the recent CRF Frozen Foods recall.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or 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.
No illnesses to date have been reported to Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. for the products involved in this voluntary recall.
Products covered by this voluntary recall were distributed in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and include only those products listed below currently in distribution and for sale. Specific product names and product information are listed below.
No other Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. retail or food service-branded products are impacted by this recall.
Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. is working with our customers to remove the products from store shelves and distribution. Consumers who have purchased these items are advised to discard them or return them to the store where originally purchased.
Consumers with questions should call our Consumer Affairs Hotline at (855) 742-5011, open between 7 am to 5 pm PDT, Monday through Sunday.
For media inquiries please contact Paul Taylor at (909) 477-4800.
In the following tables, all listed products with a Use-By Date of November 5, 2017 or earlier are impacted by this voluntary recall. If the product has a Julian Code Date, then remove/return/destroy that product as well, except for the listed Fred’s Battered Green Beans and the Molly’s Kitchen Battered Green Beans, use the codes listed in the table.
