Listeria recall expands to Canada and Mexico

frozen-vegetables-600x450Ajinomoto Windsor Inc. has recalled various Not-Ready-To Eat frozen food items due to the potential for these products to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The action is being undertaken in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) because the recalled products contain vegetables that are part of the recent CRF Frozen Foods recall.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections especially in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  Others 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.

No illnesses have yet been associated  with these Ajinomoto Windsor Inc. recalled products.

Products included in the recall  were distributed in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and include only those products listed below that are currently in distribution and for sale.  Specific product names and product information are listed below.

Other products regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that contain meat and poultry products are also affected by this recall and are subject to another recall announcement issued from that agency.
