US: Listeria found in Wylwood brand frozen broccoli
Food Safety News: Frozen broccoli packaged under Save-A-Lot’s exclusive Wylwood brand is being recalled in 11 states after a random test by Ohio officials found Listeria monocytogenes. The Ohio Department of Agriculture collected the frozen broccoli for testing at the retail store level, so there is concern that consumers may have packages of it in their homes.
The recalling company, Alimentos Congelados S.A., reported to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that the broccoli was distributed to stores in [11 States]. “The company has ceased distribution of frozen broccoli cuts, and is fully cooperating with regulatory agencies,” according to the recall notice on the FDA website. “Consumers who purchased the frozen broccoli cuts are urged not to consume this product and throw it away.”
