CRF Frozen Foods recalls all frozen fruit & vegetable products

‘We are performing this voluntary recall in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) because these products have the potential to be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes,’ the May 2 announcement said. ‘The organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.’

The CDC has said it notified the company that 7 people from three states have been hospitalized due to listeria. Two of those hospitalized later died.

The announcement said the affected products have best-by date or sell-by dates between April 26, 2016, and April 26, 2018. The recall includes 358 products under 42 brands.

Customers can return the products to the store from which they were purchased for a full refund or throw them away.

The company halted operations at its Pasco, facility after the initial recall for a thorough review.


Specific products affected by the recall are listed by brand and UPC code on the CRF Frozen Foods website.
