The recall covers 15 products that are sold at Costco, Bj’s and Meijer stores. Food Safety News further explained:

CRF Frozen Foods of Pasco, WA, posted the recall Friday because random samples of frozen organic peas and corn tested by Ohio health officials returned positive results for the foodborne pathogen.

At least four brands are included in the frozen vegetable recall: Schwans, True Goodness by Meijer; Wellsley Farms Organic; and Organic by Nature. Vegetables recalled are various varieties of peas, corn and mixed vegetables.

The potentially contaminated items were packaged in plastic bags and stocked in store freezer sections starting Sept. 13, 2015, and ending March 16, 2016. The items were reportedly sold in 35 states and in Canada. RELATED: Keep cool in a crisis with these tips.
