The FDA says they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes

Twin City Foods, Inc. of Stanwood, Washington, is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of Not-Ready-To Eat Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) Super Sweet Cut Corn and Mixed Vegetables in retail bags.

The company said there is a potential for these products to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. 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.

A compete list of the products subject to his recall and be found here.

To date, there have been no actual consumer reports of human illness or other complaints associated with this product.

The recall has been initiated because finished products may potentially be contaminated with the Listeria monocytogenes, based on one customer’s third party lab results for the IQF sweet cut corn.

What to do

Consumers who have purchased the affected product are urged not to consume the product and immediately return the product to the store where they purchased it for a full refund.

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers with any questions may contact Twin City Foods at (360) 629-5678 Monday through Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time).
