Frozen vegetables from Kroger recalled due to probable bacterial contamination



Indianapolis, Indiana – There is a recall on several packs of frozen veggies sold under the Kroger brand in Indiana due to possible bacterial contamination.

The concerned food manufacturer, Twin City Foods, voluntarily initiated the recall after a customer’s frozen sweet corn tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes in a third-party lab test.

The Kroger brand mixed vegetables comprising carrots, maize, green beans, and peas, in a variety of sizes, are included in the recall. The Food and Drug Administration’s website has a complete list.

While kept in the refrigerator, the bacterium listeria might continue to develop. It can result in serious infections that can even be fatal in infants, elderly people, and other people with compromised immune systems. High temperature, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal discomfort, and diarrhea are some of the short-term symptoms.

The FDA claims that the frozen vegetables have not been linked to any reports of illness or other concerns.

Customers who purchased the recalled vegetables are advised not to consume them and to return them right away to Kroger for a complete refund.

Twin City Foods can be reached at 360-629-5678 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EDT, Monday through Friday.
