Woodstock Frozen Red Peppers Recalled For Possible Listeria

UNFI is recalling 10 ounce packages of Woodstock Frozen Organic Grilled Red Peppers because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.  No illnesses have been reported to the company to date in connection with this issue.

Routine testing by the Rhode Island Department of Health found Listeria monocytogenes bacteria in a single lot number of the product. Production of the product has been suspected while an investigation is conducted.

The recalled product is 10 ounce plastic packages of Woodstock frozen Organic Grilled Red Peppers. The UPC number on the product is 4256301714, the lot number is 60B, and the expiration date of April 2020 is stamped on the back of the package. This product was distributed nationally to retail stores.

If you have purchased this specific product with this lot code, do not eat it, even if you plan to cook with it. Throw it away in a secure garbage can with a tight fitting lid, or take it back to the store where you bought it for a refund.

You should then clean your freezer or refrigerator with a solution of one tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to one gallon of warm water to kill any bacteria. Listeria bacteria can grow in the refrigerator, and freezing doesn’t kill it. Remove all products from those appliances, wipe them down, then clean the appliance. Rinse everything with water, then dry.

If you ate this product, monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms can include a high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only be mildly sick with what seems like the flu, but this infection can cause stillbirth and miscarriage. If you do feel sick, see your doctor.
