Trader Joe's Continues Expanding Its Frozen Food Recall

Trader Joe's is recalling more food products over possible listeria concerns.

The grocery chain recalled its brand-name vegetable-fried rice and its chicken-fried rice Monday. Both are found in Trader Joe's frozen foods section.

This recall is tied to one made earlier this month by CRF Frozen Foods.

It's voluntarily recalled more than 350 frozen fruit and vegetable products because of a potential listeria contamination.

As of May 3, at least eight people were hospitalized with listeria, and the CRF frozen food products have been named a "likely source of illness in this outbreak."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate about 1,600 people are infected with listeria each year. It's treated with antibiotics but can be deadly if a patient is older or has existing medical problems.

Trader Joe's says customers who purchased any of the recalled products can return them to their local store for a full refund.
