Updated Items:

  • This release was updated on May 21 to reflect the addition of "Best if used by" dates for 12 oz Kroger Vegetable Soup Mix.

As part of the on-going CRF Frozen Foods recall, The Pictsweet Company is notifying consumers that certain Kroger brand frozen vegetable sold in Fry's, King Soopers, City Market, Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Smith's, QFC, and Fred Meyer are included in the recall announced Friday, May 6.

On May 5th CRF Frozen Foods informed Pictsweet they were initiating a recall on all lots of Green Beans and Green Peas supplied to Pictsweet due to the potential risk they may contain Listeria monocytogenes (Lm), an organism that is widespread in the environment. Lm can contaminate food and cause mild to severe illness to persons who consume food containing Lm. Persons at greatest risk are newborn infants, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems. Further information about CRF's recall can be found on the FDA website at: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm497297.htm.

Kroger is removing these items from store shelves and is initiating its customer recall notification system which alerts customers who may have purchased products through register receipt tape messages and phone calls.
