April 6, 2022 — Our Table Cooperative, of Sherwood, Oregon, has recalled frozen blueberries due to potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.
The blueberries were grown and distributed only in Oregon, so the recall was announced by the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
The recalled blueberries were sold in bulk cases, 2.5-pound or 5-pound plastic bags, and distributed to the following locations between March 12 and March 29, 2022:
- Alberta Co-op Grocery
- Food Front
- Green Zebra Grocery
- Helvetia Farm Market
- Our Table Cooperative
- People’s Food Co-op
- Canopy & Understory
- Milk Glass Market
- Shine Distillery
No illnesses were reported. Instead, the recall was issued after a routine sampling program by the company revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.
Infections with Listeria are rare, but they can be life-threatening or deadly. Unlike many bacteria, Listeria can survive on foods that are frozen.
“Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women,” according to the recall notice.
