According to the FDA, CRF had already suspended operations at its Pasco, Washington facility as of Monday morning, April 25, 2016 following an earlier recall.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) has informed CRF Frozen Foods that the government has identified seven (7) people from three (3) states who became ill and were hospitalized due to Listeria infection. At least some of these illnesses have been linked to consuming CRF-manufactured or processed products. The CDC also reported that two (2) of these individuals later died, but that Listeria is not currently suspected as the direct cause of death in either person.

All retailers who received the products have been contacted.

Products being recalled may have been purchased in all fifty (50) US states and the following four (4) Canadian provinces: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Saskatchewan.
