FDA Issues Food Recall, 38 Pages, Trader Joe Brands Included

[complete list]

[From article]
CRF Frozen Foods announced that its expanding its recall of frozen vegetables and fruit with best buy dates between April 26, 2016 and April 26, 2018.
In a statement, CRF said the company is performing this voluntary recall in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention because the products have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
Christina LaRock's daughter Callie had just poured herself a bowl of peas from Trader Joes, which she eats every day after school, when LaRock got a recall alert from Newscenter 5's mobile app.
"I caught the name Trader Joe's Organic and I said 'I shop there every week'," LaRock said. The peas Callie was eating as a snack were among the 854 frozen foods possibly contaminated.
"My heart sank," said LaRock, as Callie approached her mother with an empty bowl and asked for more. "I said 'actually Callie, you can't'."
Three-hundred and fifty-eight products, sold nationwide under 42 separate brands, are included in the recall. Several brands included in the recall are carried by national chains with local stores, like Trader Joe's, Costco and Walmart.
"It makes me nervous as a mom and consumer," said LaRock. "It makes me want to grow a green thumb and start to put a garden in my backyard."
