SALISBURY, NC – Freshouse II, LLC has issued a voluntary recall of brands and weights of Valencia oranges, lemons, limes, organic limes, and size B red potatoes that are potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
The recall was voluntarily initiated after the company’s routine internal testing identified Listeria monocytogenes on a piece of equipment at one of Freshouse’s packing facilities. The supplier has ceased the production and distribution of the product that was packed on the equipment in question and is taking corrective action.
No illnesses from the recalled Freshouse products have been reported as of Aug. 11.
“We voluntarily issued this recall out of an abundance of caution with the steadfast intent to minimize even the slightest risk to public health,” said Jamey Friedman, president. “We take food safety and this recall seriously. Freshouse is committed to providing consumers with fresh, nutritious, safe products.”
The recall includes products branded under Freshouse, Nature’s Promise, Fresh from the Start and Wegmans. A full list of the recalled products can be found here.
Freshouse has notified its retail and wholesale customers who received the recalled product and is requesting that those customers remove the recalled product from commerce.
