The Kane County Health Department is informing residents that General Mills has announced a voluntary recall of a limited quantity of frozen Cascadian Farm Cut Green Beans produced on one day in June 2015. The recall is being issued as a precaution after one package of finished product tested positive for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes. No illnesses have been reported in connection with this product.
This voluntary recall is limited to 16-ounce bags of frozen Cascadian Farm Cut Green Beans with a “Better If Used By” date printed on the package:
No other varieties or production dates of Cascadian Farm products are affected by this recall.
The product was distributed to retail establishments nationwide.
Listeria bacteria can cause a serious infection called listeriosis. Listeriosis is caused by eating food contaminated with Listeria bacteria and typically occurs within three days to 10 weeks of consumption (usually within three weeks). Symptoms of listeriosis include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions, which can be preceded by nausea or diarrhea. Listeria infection can be treated with antibiotics.
Consumers are urged to dispose of the products affected by this recall and contact Cascadian Farm Consumer Relations at 1-800-624-4123 for a replacement.
