The Pictsweet Company is voluntarily recalling certain frozen vegetable products because they contain Green Beans or Green Peas recently recalled by CRF Frozen Foods, a Pictsweet ingredient supplier.
On May 5th CRF Frozen Foods informed Pictsweet they were initiating a recall on all lots of Green Beans and Green Peas supplied to Pictsweet due to the potential risk they may contain Listeria monocytogenes (Lm),an organism that is widespread in the environment. Lm can contaminate food and cause mild to severe illness to persons who consume food containing Lm. Persons at greatest risk are newborn infants, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems. Further information about CRF’s recall can be found on the FDA website at:http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm497297.htm.
The affected Pictsweet items were distributed nationwide through retail stores. Recalled products were all manufactured using Cut Green Beans or Green Peas. Products being recalled include “best if used by” dates in the table below and the letter “K” as the 5th digit of the manufacturing code. This information is printed on the back panel of each package. No other Pictsweet products are impacted by this recall.
