Frozen food company recalls green beans after pet food recall

January 23, 2017 from the Food Safety News and commissaries.com:

National Frozen Foods Corp. issued a Class I recall of individual quick frozen green beans because of potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination, according to notices posted by US Foods Inc. and the U.S. Department of Defense Commissary Agency.

The frozen food manufacturer issued its recall following the detection of Listeria monocytogenes in a third-party test by a downstream customer, a pet food company.

A notice from the U.S. Department of Defense Commissary Agency reported the following products sold in its commissary stores were included in the recall:

Additional products, supplied to other customers, may also have been recalled. However, no other related product recalls have yet been posted by the Food and Drug Administration.

Ed. note: I expect this recall to expand. Cook the vegetables to 165 degrees F. and be careful about cross contamination.
