Chang Farm Recalls Expired Bean and Soy Sprouts
Possible Listeria Contamination Prompts RecallChang Farm, of Whatley, MA, is issuing a recall of their bean and soy sprouts, with specific expired date codes because of the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes (L. Monocytogenes) contamination.
The affected product is packaged in 10 lb bags (bulk) and 12 oz plastic bags (retail), labeled under the Chang Farm Brand as Soy Sprouts and have a "Sell By" date of May 23, 2009 or May 24, 2009 and Bean Sprouts with "Use By" date of May 23, 2009 or May 24, 2009. The product has been distributed to retail stores and restaurants throughout MA, CT, NY and NJ.
The contamination was discovered after a sample was secured at a retail store in New York which tested positive for L. monocytogenes.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
