Certain packages of frozen cut corn sold in Alabama and 14 other states are under recall because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Cambridge Farms is recalling bags of Laura Lynn, Key Food and Better Valu brand corn after discovering through a routine sampling program by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture that the products may contain the bacteria. “In an abundance of caution, the company has included all cut corn products which may have been produced using the same lot of cut corn,” the Pennsylvania company said. “Cambridge Farms, LLC has ceased the production and distribution of the product and continues their investigation as to what caused the problem.” Young children, frail or elderly people, those with weak immune systems and pregnant women are most at risk of infection. Common symptoms include severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. The recall list includes the following items and production numbers:
