Frozen broccoli cuts sold in 11 states including Ohio have been recalled over fears of listeria contamination. (4/1/16 FDA Announcement.) Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. It can also cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Listeria infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths.

The frozen broccoli cuts were distributed to stores in the following states: Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and North Carolina.

The affected frozen broccoli cuts were distributed in poly bags under the following label and code: WYLWOOD Fresh Frozen Broccoli Cuts, NET WT. 16 OZ (1 LB), UPC 5193300110, with bag code: A25335P and A15335P.
