EE.UU: Detectan listeria en mix de vegetales congelados en Florida y otros estados

Selected lots from seven brands of frozen green beans and mixed vegetables distributed to 21 states have been recalled by a Seattle-based manufacturer because they might be contaminated with listeria.

National Frozen Foods’ FDA-posted recall notice says the recalled food went in bulk to distributors in Florida, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Washington.

Listeria monocytogenes cause listeriosis, a sometimes fatal infection in young children, elderly people and those with weakened immune systems. It can cause miscarriages and stillbirths when pregnant women get infected. Healthy people might have to deal with only diarrhea, nausea, harsh headaches, feverish temperatures, stomach pains and muscle stiffness.
