Frozen veggies recalled over Listeria concerns

green beansThe National Frozen Foods Corporation is voluntarily recalling a limited quantity of its frozen green beans and mixed vegetable products over a possible listeria contamination.

While there are no reported illnesses, the company said it's recalling the frozen green beans and frozen mixed vegetables as a precaution after test results from a 3rd party revealed that the finished products may potentially be contaminated with the bacteria.

The recalled products were distributed to food service accounts in Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Washington.

The recall covers items distributed between Aug. 18, 2017 and Jan. 12, 2018.

The recalled items can be identified by the date codes printed on the back of the 32 oz. bag or the side of the master case. Here are the items affected by the recall:
