Company Announcement

JML Ingredients, Inc. of East Petersburg, PA is recalling IQF Cut Green Beans, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which 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.

IQF Cut Green Beans was distributed to manufacturers in Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall was the result of a routine sampling program by a manufacturer who used the product in their finished product. JML Ingredients has ceased the distribution of the product as FDA and the company continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.

Products being recalled are as follows:
