Frozen veggies recall expanded over possible listeria contamination
A frozen foods company that sells its products nationwide is expanding its recall of frozen vegetables, citing a potential listeria contamination. 
 
The recall includes all frozen organic and traditional fruit and vegetable products manufactured or processed in CRF Frozen Foods' Pasco facility since May 1, 2014. The recall impacts 358 consumer products and 42 separate brands, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The products could have been purchased in all 50 states and Canada, according to the FDA. 
 
The FDA describes Listeris as “an organism which 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.”
