FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – April 22, 2015 – Phoenix, AZ – Inventure Foods, Inc. has issued a voluntary recall of certain varieties of its Fresh Frozen™ line of frozen vegetables as well as select varieties of its Jamba “At Home” line of smoothie kits due to finding of Listeria monocytogenes, in its Jefferson, GA facility. Listeria is an organism that can cause 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.
These recalled products did not test positive for Listeria monocytogenes, and there are no known illnesses linked to consumption of Fresh Frozen IQF frozen vegetables or Jamba “At Home” smoothies to date. However, Inventure Foods has decided to err on the side of utmost caution and issue a voluntary recall because Listeria monocytogenes was detected in the facility during routine testing.
To date there have been no confirmed illnesses linked to consumption of these products. The Company urges anyone who has purchased a product listed below to not consume it and to destroy the contents and its package. Representatives are available 24/7 at 866-890-1004 866-890-1004 FREE ; email [email protected] or visit InventureFoods.com/FrozenRecall so that a company representative can provide you with a refund, and help with any general inquiries regarding this matter.
The Company said, “Please be assured that we are committed to producing the highest quality products – and our top priority is the health and safety of consumers. It is with this in mind that we have initiated this voluntary recall as a precautionary measure and are working closely with the FDA to proactively remedy the situation.”
The Fresh Frozen products being recalled are distributed to retail outlets, including food service accounts, mass merchandise stores and supermarkets in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
The Jamba “At Home” smoothies’ products being recalled are distributed to retail outlets, including mass merchandise stores and supermarkets east of the Mississippi River. Only specific Jamba “At Home” branded products are involved in this recall. No other Jamba® branded products are affected.
