Company Announcement

Pinnacle Foods Inc. is voluntarily recalling a limited number of C&W Early Harvest Petite Peas and C&W Petite Peas because they may contain Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes is 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.

The frozen products are being recalled as a precaution with the health and safety of our consumers as our top priority. Pinnacle Foods initiated the recall after the contract packer of the products, National Frozen Foods, notified the Company of the issue. The Food and Drug Administration has been made aware of this recall. No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recalled products were distributed nationally and online. All affected distributors and retail customers are being notified and the recalled products are being removed from store shelves.
