article imageMany more products added to recall over Listeria contamination

By Karen Graham     May 9, 2016 in Food
The current recall of frozen vegetables and fruits over Listeria contamination continues to expand as more and more companies are added to the Food and Drug Administration's list.
Let's start with the recall on May 7, 2016, of 117,350 pounds of meat tamale products from the Hialeah, Florida-based La Authentic Foods, LLC. The problem was discovered during an FDA recall of frozen corn contaminated with Listeria.
Because the tamales contain meat, the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service got into the recall. The packaging differs from product to product, but they all bear the establishment number “EST. 11154” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced from Sept. 4, 2015, to April 26, 2016.
Retail and restaurant distribution is limited to Florida for these products. There is the concern by the FSIS and the company that consumers and restaurants may have the products stored in their freezers. People are asked to check to see if the products are being stored and if found, to throw them away. Do not consume them.
To view a complete list of the heat-treated, not fully cooked, not shelf stable tamale in corn husk recalled products, including use by/sell by dates and package dates, please go to the USDA/FSIS recall notice. This is a Class 1, High health Risk recall.

Kroger is removing these items from store shelves and is initiating its customer recall notification system which alerts customers who may have purchased products through register receipt tape messages and phone calls. The products are sold under the Kroger label or the Kroger P$$T label. These products all include the letter “K” as the 5th digit of the manufacturing code.
Products sold in Fry’s, King Soopers, City Market, Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Smith’s, QFC, and Fred Meyer are also subject to this recall. Customers who have purchased these products should return them to the store for a full refund or replacement. Do not consume the products.

Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. recall covers three countries
Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. is voluntarily recalling various Not-Ready-To-Eat frozen food items due to the potential for these products to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. This voluntary action is being undertaken in cooperation with the USDA and FDA because the recalled products contain vegetables that are part of the recent CRF Frozen Foods recall.
Sadly, especially for the company involved, this is another huge recall involving products distributed in Canada, the U.S. and in Mexico. To date, no illnesses have been reported in the consumption of any of the Ajinomoto Windsor products under this recall.
Ajinomoto Windsor, working with its customers to remove the affected products from store shelves and distribution. Consumers who have the products under the recall notice are advised to throw them out or return them to the store where originally purchased.
