article imageThree brands of frozen cut corn recalled because of Listeria

By Karen Graham     Aug 22, 2016 in Food
Lancaster - A Pennsylvania-based company has recalled three brands of its private label frozen cut corn because a package sampled from a retail store tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
Cambridge Farms LLC of Lancaster, PA has ceased the production and distribution of the frozen cut corn product and is working with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to find the source of the problem.
In the FDA notice posted on the evening of August 19, three brands, Laura Lynn, Key Food and Better Valu frozen cut corn are being recalled. There is concern that consumers may have the products in home freezers because of its long shelf life, which reaches clear into 2018.
The recall was initiated by Cambridge Farms after receiving results from a routine sampling program by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture that revealed that the finished product they sampled from a retail store contained the bacteria.
Food Safety News is reporting the products under this recall notice were distributed in 15 states, including North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Maryland and Florida.
The potentially contaminated frozen cut corn includes the following private-label products:
