Garland Ventures learned of a problem after their supplier of vegetable fried rice, Ajinomoto Windsor Inc., informed them that frozen foods involved in a CRF Frozen Foods’ recall had been used in their products. CRF voluntarily recalled frozen vegetable and fruit items after a listeriosis outbreak.
There have been no confirmed reports of illness or adverse reactions due to consumption of any Garland Ventures products.
Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Some of the symptoms include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal problems.
Anyone who purchased ANJOY Chicken Fried Rice between the above dates and with the code number in the inspection mark are urged not to consume the product. The food should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.MORE NEWS: 2 Former North Texas Teachers Arrested, Accused Of Abusing Non-Verbal Children At Elementary School
