Many people think that vegetables are always healthy for them, but the most recent large recall disproves that. CRF Frozen Foods has recalled fifteen different frozen vegetable products according to Huffpost Healthy Living. The brand names are True Goodness by Meijer, Wellsley Farms Organic, Organic by Nature, and Schwan’s. These vegetables are frozen peas, corn, and mixed vegetables. The vegetables were recalled because the compant thought they might be contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes, which is a bacteria that can cause food poisoning or worse. Thankfully, there have not been any reported illnesses yet, according to the FDA. These vegetables have been selling from September 13, 2015 to March 16, 2016. There are 35 states selling the vegetables, including Ohio. The forzen vegetables were also sold in four Canadian provinces according to Huffpost Healthy Living. If you have purchased these frozen vegetables, either throw them away or take them back tot he store for a refund.
