Inventure Foods is recalling dozens of frozen-vegetable products as well as Jamba brand smoothie kits from large supermarkets and retail centers in several states, including Mississippi according to a U.S. Food and Drug Administration email alert distributed this morning.
The voluntary recall by Inventure Foods, Inc. affects dozens of varieties of the companyâ€™s â€œFresh Frozenâ€ line of frozen vegetables as well as select varieties of its Jamba â€œAt Homeâ€ line of smoothie kits because of the detection of Listeria monocytogenes bacteria during routine testing in the companyâ€™s production facility in Jefferson, Georgia.
To view a list of the specific products recalled, go to www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls.
No known illnesses linked to consumption of Fresh Frozen frozen vegetables or Jamba â€œAt Homeâ€ smoothies have been reported to date, and no listeria has been detected in the products themselves, but the company issued the recall notice because of the detected presence of the bacteria in the production facility.
Listeria can cause infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems, the FDA said. Healthy people may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, but a listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Inventure Foods urged those who purchased recalled product to destroy the contents and its package and notify the company to obtain a refund.
