A massive food recall involving more than 400 products from Washington-based CRF Frozen Foods should give Canadians pause to carefully look through any frozen fruits and vegetables.
The affected products were shipped to all 50 U.S. states, Canada and Mexico and have been recalled due to possible listeria contamination. The frozen food items were sold under more than 40 different brand names at major retailers like Costco, Target, Trader Joe’s and Safeway.
