Frozen Fruit and Vegetable Recall
This link has a list of frozen fruits and vegetables that have been recalled due to possible contamination with (according to the FDA)" Listeria monocytogenes. The organism 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."
