Ontario, CA – Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. is voluntarily recalling various Not-Ready-To Eat frozen food items due to the potential for these products to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. This voluntary action is being undertaken in cooperation with the US Food and Drug Administration because the recalled products contain vegetables that are part of the recent CRF Frozen Foods recall.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
No illnesses to date have been reported to Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. for the products involved in this voluntary recall.
Products covered by this voluntary recall were distributed in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and include only those products listed below currently in distribution and for sale. Specific product names and product information are listed below. We have modified the listing because we have identified five items that we determined are not impacted by the recall and have removed them from our list.
Other products regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) that contain meat and poultry products are also affected by this recall and are subject to another recall announcement issued from that agency. No other Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. retail or food service-branded products are impacted by this voluntary recall.
Ajinomoto Windsor, Inc. is working with our customers to remove the products from store shelves and distribution. Consumers who have purchased these items are advised to discard them or return them to the store where originally purchased.
Consumers with questions should call our Consumer Affairs Hotline at (855) 742 - 5011, open between 7 AM to 5 PM PDT, Monday through Sunday.
For media inquiries please contact Paul Taylor at (909) 477-4800.
We will be contacting our customers regarding specific lot codes and shipments that are impacted by this recall.
