Investigation of Frozen Vegetable Listeria Outbreak

The investigation found that frozen vegetables produced by CRF Frozen Foods of Pasco, Washington and sold under various brand names were a likely source of illnesses in this outbreak. After this revelation, CRF Foods initiated a widespread recall.

Despite the end of the investigation, there is still a possibility that consumers may continue to contract Listeriosis because recalled products may still be in freezers and people who don’t know about the recalls could eat them.

CRF Frozen Foods Recall Includes Over 350 Products

On May 2, 2016, CRF Frozen Foods expanded the initial April 23, 2016 recall to include more than 350 organic and traditional frozen vegetable and fruit products sold under 42 separate brands, as well as at least 100 other products prepared by other companies that contained recalled ingredients from CRF Frozen Foods.

Information on Listeria and Listeriosis

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that there are 1,591 cases of foodborne listeriosis, resulting in 255 deaths, in the U.S. each year. Listeriosis affects primarily older adults, individuals with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women.

Listeria and Listeriosis Symptoms

Listeriosis symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, fatigue, and sometimes gastrointestinal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.

Infection with Listeria may remain limited to intestinal tract (non-invasive), or the bacteria may spread beyond the intestinal tract (invasive) causing a life-threatening septicemia or meningitis. Other complications may include endocarditis, abscess formation, pneumonia, and eye and or joint inflammation
