Listeria fears spur Costco and Trader Joe’s to pull food
Sacramento-area branches of Costco and Trader Joe’s have pulled all products involved in two separate multistate recalls of food that may be contaminated with listeria bacteria.
A large and wide-ranging recall spurred retailer Costco to voluntarily remove quick-frozen vegetables and fruits from all seven of its stores in the Sacramento region. That recall, announced in April, has expanded to include 42 brands involving 358 vegetable products sourced from a CRF Frozen Food plant in Wasco, Wash.
The products go by names such as Organic by Nature, Columbia River Organics and Farmer’s Bounty and involve items such as corn, edamame, raspberries, potatoes, kale, cherries and peas.
