Martin’s Food Markets recall frozen green beans for possible Listeria

Carlisle, PA  (WRIC) – Following a recall by General Mills, GIANT Food Stores, LLC and MARTIN’S Food Markets announced it removed from sale a limited quantity of Cascadian Farms Organic Frozen Green Beans due to the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The following product is included in this recall:

  • Cascadian Farms Organic Frozen Green Beans, 16 oz., UPC 2190850145; with a “Better If Used By” date of 29JUN2017

GIANT/MARTIN’S has received no reports of illnesses to date. Listeria is a common organism found in nature.  Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis.  However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.

Customers who have purchased the product should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to GIANT/MARTIN’S for a full refund.
