(April 2, 2016) — A company is voluntarily recalling frozen broccoli cuts sold in 11 states over fears of Listeria contamination.

Listeria infection causes serious and at times fatal infections in children, elderly people and those with weakened immune systems. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths.

No illnesses have been associated with the product so far, the company said.

States affected

Alimentos Congelados, S.A. recalled 1,800 cases distributed to stores in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and North Carolina.

The recalled Wylwood brand is packaged in 16-ounce plastic bags. Its label information is UPC 5193300110 and the bag code is A25335P or A15335P.

Company: Throw it away

“The company has ceased distribution of frozen broccoli cuts, and is fully cooperating with regulatory agencies,” it said.

Anyone who has this product is urged to throw it away.

Customers can call 1-800-888-4646 for a refund or other questions.
