Sunmba Frozen Ajiaco Recalled for Possible Listeria Contamination

Barberi International is recalling its Sunmba Frozen Ajiaco (vegetable mix) product that was sold in Florida for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. No illnesses have been reported to date, but listeriosis, the illness caused by this bacteria, can take more than 2 months to manifest.

The recalled product is Sunmba Frozen Ajiaco and was packaged in a 2 pound plastic bag. The UPC number is 85641400172 with a “use by” date of November 5, 2017 or earlier. You can see the list of stores where the product was sold between December 24, 2016 through January 22, 2017 at the FDA web site.

Listeria monocytogenes bacteria was found in the product during Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services product testing. If you purchased this product, do not eat it, even if you are going to heat it. Throw it away in a sealed container or take it back to the place of purchase for a refund.

Then clean out your freezer and/or refrigerator, or wherever you stored the product, with a solution of one tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to one gallon of water. Listeria bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures, and freezing doesn’t kill it.

If you ate this product, watch yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include severe headache, high fever, stiff neck, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women need to be very careful about this type of infection, since listeriosis can cause miscarriage and stillbirth. See your doctor even if you feel only mildly ill.
