UNFI Recalls its Woodstock Frozen Organic Grilled Red Peppers Because of Possible Health Risk
Out of an abundance of caution, UNFI is voluntarily recalling its 10 ounce packages of Woodstock frozen Organic Grilled Red Peppers because they have the potential to be contaminated with 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
infections can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
