Announcement

Nature’s Touch Frozen Foods LLC. of Front Royal, Virginia is voluntarily recalling one product, Nature’s Touch Frozen Organic Fine Whole Green Beans, due to potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

Nature’s Touch is issuing this voluntary recall after a routine sampling program by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection found one positive result of Listeria monocytogenes in one retail bag of the product. Nature’s Touch has immediately ceased the production and distribution of this product and is working in full collaboration with the FDA on this recall.

Nature’s Touch Frozen Organic Fine Whole Green Beans were distributed through three retailers in the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia. All affected retailers have been contacted to ensure that the recalled product is removed from store shelves. Other products of Nature’s Touch Frozen Foods LLC. are not affected.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that may 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.

To date, there have been no reported illnesses associated with the product that is the subject of this recall:
