Company Recalls Frozen Corn That is Sold in Local Stores

By: Rich Hosford

A food company that supplies a local grocery store, among others, is recalling a product over fears of contamination. 

 

Bonduelle USA Inc. of Brockport, NY, is recalling 9,335 cases of frozen corn because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a notice by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) states. 

 

One of the products in question is Market Basket Cut Corn and the recall includes stores in Massachusetts. 

 

Three other products on the list are Wylewood Super Sweet Whole Kernel Corn, Bountiful Harvest Whole Kernel Cut Corn and West Creek Frozen Vegetables Cut Corn. All the products being recalled have an expiration date of June, 2017. 

 

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.Although healthy individuals 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.

 

The company has not received any complaints in relation to this product and is not aware of any illnesses associated with the product to date, the FDA report. 

 

The recall was the result of product being tested at retail by the State of Tennessee which had tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. The company is fully cooperating with the FDA.

 

Consumers who purchased the product are urged not to consume this product and throw it away. Consumers requiring refund or with questions may contact the company at 1-877-990-2662, Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
