U.S.: Simplot recalls vegetable mix product amid Listeria fears

Idaho-based J.R. Simplot Company is voluntarily recalling approximately 954 cases of its Classic Vegetables Meadow Blend due to the potential for contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. 

It said the product had been processed and packaged by National Frozen Food Corporation.

Simplot was informed by National Frozen Foods that this product was included in a larger recall of products due to an ingredient having been tested and found positive for Listeria monocytogenes by a third party.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with this product recall.

Listeria is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems.

Although healthy individuals may experience only short-term symptoms such as fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Simplot said all impacted customers and distributors will be notified of the recall and directed to place on hold any remaining inventory, cease selling, stocking and serving the specific product listed above.
