A meat and poultry product recall consisting of approximately 47,112,256 pounds of not-ready-to-eat items has been undertaken by the meat company Ajinomoto Windsor on the basis that the items “may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes”, according to an announcement by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
The USDA said the problem was discovered when Ajinomoto Windsor was notified by CRF Frozen Foods that its frozen vegetables, used in Ajinomoto Windsor products, were involved in a recall.
“CRF Frozen Foods of Pasco, Washington voluntarily recalled frozen fruit and vegetable items due to an illness outbreak of listeriosis,” continued the USDA. “There have been no confirmed reports of illness or adverse reactions due to consumption of Ajinomoto Windsor’s products.”
A statement released by Ajinomoto Windsor said its “voluntarily action” was being undertaken in cooperation with the USDA “because the recalled products contain vegetables that are part of the recent CRF Frozen Foods recall”.
“No illnesses to date have been reported to Ajinomoto Windsor for the products involved in this voluntary recall,” said the company.
Products covered by the recall were distributed in the US, Canada and Mexico.
