CRF Frozen Foods recalls vegetables due to listeria concerns
CRF Frozen Foods of Pasco, Washington, is voluntarily recalling 15 frozen vegetable items that have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women, according to FDA.

Recalled items were sold in plastic bags and are marked with Use By Dates located on the back of the package.
Recalled frozen vegetables were distributed to retailers and distribution centers between September 13, 2015 and March 16. For a list of states and details regarding recalled items visit the CRF Frozen Foods recall announcement on the FDA website.
