Harris Teeter Issues Recall Due To Possible Listeria Contamination

Matthews, N.C. (PRWEB) May 06, 2016

Out of an abundance of caution, Harris Teeter is voluntarily recalling Harris Teeter Frozen Organic Corn and Harris Teeter Frozen Mixed Vegetables due to the potential for these products to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Harris Teeter was notified by Seabrook Brothers, the manufacturer of these products, may have used vegetables that are part of the recent CRF Frozen Foods recall.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recall applies to:
Harris Teeter Frozen Organic Corn
UPC number 7203676395

Harris Teeter Frozen Organic Mixed Vegetables
UPC number 7203676393

Harris Teeter stocks Harris Teeter Frozen Organic Corn and Harris Teeter Frozen Mixed Vegetables. However, they do not currently stock the UPC’s listed above.

These products may have been sold in Harris Teeter stores between October 19, 2015 and December 24, 2015. Harris Teeter asks customers who purchased the products containing the UPC’s mentioned between October 19, 2015 and December 24, 2015 to please not consume the products. Instead, please return the products to Harris Teeter for a full refund.

Product quality and integrity are paramount to Harris Teeter. If you purchased the recalled product, please return it to any Harris Teeter store for a full refund. Customers with questions should call CRF Frozen Foods at the CRF Recall Call Center at 844-551-5595.
