Fourteen states have recalled frozen corn after bacteria linked to possible serious or fatal infections was discovered during routine testing.
The New York-based company, Bonduelle USA, Inc., has halted distribution on the product and urged customers to throw theirs away. The corn is distributed through multiple brands, including Bountiful Harvest, Wylwood, and Market Basket.
The corn has been sold in the following states:
- New York
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
While the bacteria, Listeria monocytogenes, has yet to result in any reported illness, an infection can cause fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, diarrhea, and in serious cases, even death. It is especially harmful to young children and the elderly.
If you’ve purchased the contaminated corn and would like a refund, contact Bonduelle USA, Inc. at 1-877-990-2662.

The Strangest Stadium Foods In The Country (PHOTOS)
1. "The Walk Off" at Baltimore's Camden Yards is Italian Sausage covered in crab dip and a pretzel roll. While the name is a nod to baseball, you probably will need to walk it off once you're through with this beast.1 of 11
2. The Rocky Mountain Oysters at Coors Field in Denver are probably the biggest culprit of false advertising. ICYDK, these "oysters" are actually fried bull testicles. Bon appetit.2 of 11
3. They sell fried ravioli with dipping sauce at the Busch Stadium in St. Louis, because who wants crap like fries and ice cream when you can have ravioli at a sporting event?3 of 11
4. Baseball's Best Burger (known as the "Luther Burger to some) is your typical burger - but instead of basic buns, they're Krispy Kreme donuts.4 of 11
5. The "Sliders Family Meal Deal" at Yankee Stadium in New York is a $20 deal you can't pass up. However, burgers in a bucket seems like a dream and a sin at the same time.5 of 11
6. The Murph-A-Dilla is a 24-inch long beef brisket quesadilla. Clearly it's meant for sharing, but you probably won't.6 of 11
7. "The Baco" at Fifth Third Ballpark in Michigan probably isn't what you thought it was. It's your ordinary taco, but instead of a tortilla, it's wrapped in good ol' bacon.7 of 11
8. The StrasBurger at Nats Park in Washington is one big and expensive burger ($59 to be exact). It's 8 pounds, so you'll literally have a food baby after getting through with this.8 of 11
9. The Pulled Pork Parfait at Miller Park in Milwaukee looks so wrong, but probably tastes so right.9 of 11
10. Triple Pork Poutine at the BMO Field in Toronto is a Canadian and meat-lover's dream all it once.10 of 11
11. BBQ Nachos at RedZone Park in Memphis sound like an amazing Tex-Mex mix.11 of 11
