The Wall Street Journal: General Mills recalls another batch of green beans due to listeria
General Mills Inc. is voluntarily recalling a small amount of frozen Cascadian Farm Cut Green Beans after a package tested positive for listeria, the second listeria-related recall for this brand of green bean this year.
The recall involves green beans produced on one day in June and is limited to 16-ounce bags with a “Better If Used By” date of 29JUNE2017.
General Mills GIS, +1.13% said no related illnesses have been reported.
Food-safety experts say listeria is a particularly tricky and virulent pathogen that blossoms in refrigerated environments. Listeria typically doesn’t cause significant illnesses in healthy people but poses a high risk for pregnant women, newborns, older adults and people with weakened immune systems.
