The FDA is reporting that General Mills has announced a voluntary recall of a limited quantity of frozen Cascadian Farm Cut Green Beans. These were produced over two days in March 2014. The recall is a precaution after one package tested positive for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria is nothing to mess around with. It can cause gastrointestinal symptoms, fevers, muscle aches, and even death. As of this writing, no related illnesses have been reported in connection with this product.

Only 10-ounce bags of frozen Cascadian Farm Cut Green Beans with either of two “Better If Used By” dates of '10APR2016' or '11APR2016' printed on the package are involved in this recall. These green beans were distributed nationwide. No other varieties or production dates of Cascadian Farm products are affected by this recall.

If you have any of these packages, you are urged to dispose of them and call Cascadian Farm Consumer Relations at 1-800-624-4123 for a replacement.
