The latest possible listeria contamination has hit the frozen corn industry. According to the Food and Drug Administration, Bonduelle USA Inc. of Brockport, NY, has recalled over 9,000 cases of frozen corn.
People who consume foods with listeria can get a serious infection called listeriosis. Adults with weaker immune systems, pregnant women, older adults, and newborns are more susceptible to the bacteria, and symptoms usually begin with diarrhea or stomach pains.
The frozen corns have been distributed to stores across the states including New York, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Massachusetts, Kentucky, Virginia, Louisiana, New Jersey, Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina.
So if you have any of these bags of corn in your fridge, you may want to toss them out immediately:
