Frozen Peas and Vegetables Sold in 21 States Recalled Due to Listeria Risk


If you're hoarding bags of frozen peas, carrots, and other veggies for the next snowpocalypse, you might want to check the expiration of said bags.

On Wednesday, January 24, National Frozen Foods Corporation voluntarily recalled a limited quantity of frozen veggies due to a potential listeria contamination, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail, or elderly people, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

While healthy individuals may suffer from short-term symptoms such as severe headache, high fever, nausea, stiffness, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, a listeria infection can cause major problems for pregnant woman, including stillbirths and miscarriages.
