Over 9,000 Cases of Frozen Corn Might Be Contaminated with Listeria
A potential listeria contamination has led to a recall of frozen corn.
The frozen corn was distributed in poly bags under the labels Wylwood Super Sweet Whole Kernel Corn, Market Basket Cut Corn, Bountiful Harvest Whole Kernel Cut Corn, and West Creek Frozen Vegetables Cut Corn. All of these bags have best by dates of June 2017.
The corn was distributed to stores across New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Massachusetts, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana.
There have been no complaints or known illnesses associated with the affected products. The recall was initiated when one product tested positive for the organism.
Listeria symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
Bonduelle has stopped production of the corn, and the FDA is currently investigating what caused the contamination. If you’ve purchased one of these varieties of frozen corn, the FDA urges you to throw it away or receive a refund by calling Bonduelle at 1-877-990-2662.
