Nature’s Touch Frozen Foods LLC. of Front Royal, Va. is voluntarily recalling its Frozen Organic Fine Whole Green Beans sold in multiple states — including Connecticut — because they might be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

The company is issuing this voluntary recall after a routine sampling program by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection found one positive result of Listeria monocytogenes in one retail bag of the product. Nature’s Touch has immediately ceased the production and distribution of this product and is working in full collaboration with the FDA on this recall.

Nature’s Touch Frozen Organic Fine Whole Green Beans were distributed through three retailers in COnnecticut and 11 other states. All affected retailers have been contacted to ensure that the recalled product is removed from store shelves.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that may cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

To date, there have been no reported illnesses associated with the product that is the subject of this recall. Consumers who have purchased Nature’s Touch Frozen Organic Fine Whole Green Beans are urged to discard the product or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. The Nature’s Touch Consumer Service Team will be available to answer any questions at 877-850-2664 or by email at
