Schnucks: Pictsweet recalls Pictsweet Seasoning Blend and Pictsweet Steamable Spring Vegetables due to possible Listeria contamination

St. Louis, MO, 2016-Apr-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — Pictsweet has issued a recall on select items because one its ingredient suppliers, Oregon Potato Company DBA Freeze Pack, has recalled IQF onions processed at their facility because the products may be contaminate with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can sometimes 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 infections can cause miscarriage and stillbirths among pregnant women.
