Schwan's frozen corn included in national recall


A frozen veggie product sold by Schwan's is part of a larger recall made because of listeria concerns.

A company called CRF Frozen Foods, which is based in Washington state, is voluntarily recalling 15 frozen vegetable items – including a product sold by the Marshall, Minnesota-based Schwan's.

Nobody has reported getting ill, but the company says it's possible the products are contaminated with listeria monocytogenes, so it is taking precautions.

The Schwan's item in question: 16-ounce bags of Organic SS Yellow & White Cut Corn. It'll have a UPC of 07218060433, and a sell-by date that reads 2B5320.

There are also veggies from True Goodness By Meijer, Wellsley Farms Organic, and Organic by Nature in the recall. Click the image below for the full list. The recalled products were sold between Sept. 13 of last year, and March 16 of this year.

What is listeria?

Listeria is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young kids, the elderly or people with weakened immune systems, and it can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Those who are healthy may only suffer short-term symptoms, including high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
