Cascadian Farms Recalls Frozen Green Beans From 2014 For Possible Listeria

We have really terrible news for anyone out there who was planning to make a turkey bacon and green bean sandwich on whole wheat or multi-grain bread, even though that has probably never been a sandwich that a real person would eat or make. All three of those foods have been recalled in the last few days, now including green beans from Cascadian Farm.

These beans may potentially be contaminated with Listeria bacteria, and the affected products are more than a year old. Freezing doesn’t kill Listeria, and it causes an illness that can potentially cause severe illness, death, stillbirths, or miscarriages. No one has reported any illnesses, and the contamination was found when one package was tested.

Here’s what you need to look for: recalled packages will have “better if used by” dates of 10APR2016 and 11APR2016. They were manufactured in March 2014, and sold nationwide sometime after that.

Consumers should throw away the frozen beans and call Cascadian Farms for replacement veggies at 1-800-624-4123. You can also call that number if you have any questions about products you own or about this recall.
