Edamame in 33 states has been recalled and removed from stores due to potential listeria contamination. The company affected is Advanced Fresh Concepts Franchise Corp. in Rancho Dominguez, California.
The recall was issued for refrigerated, packaged edamame labeled "Edamame—Soybeans in Pods", dated between 01/03/2017 and 03/17/2017, and sold in the following states:
AL, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, ME, MI, MN, MS, NC, NH, NM, NY, OH, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, WA, and WY.
No illnesses from the potential contamination have been reported, but the FDA suggests that consumers in the affected states check with their store of purchase to find out if the edamame purchased falls under the recall. If it does, you should not consume it and can return it for a full refund. However, even if you haven't purchased edamame recently, it would still be wise to be exercise caution if you live in one of the states listed above—as the at-risk beans were also sold to cafeterias and corporate dining centers.
