    Costco called and left a robo call regarding a recall. Upon research, it is more then just Costco stores.

    A Pasco, Washington, company has expanded its recall of frozen vegetables linked to a listeria outbreak that has sickened eight people.

    The Centers for Disease Control says the recall by CRF Frozen Foods began in April and was expanded on Monday. The recall now includes all organic and traditional frozen vegetable and fruit products processed in the company's Pasco facility since May 1, 2014.

    About 358 products sold under 42 separate brands were recalled. Brands include Great Value (Wal-Mart), Kirkland Signature (Costco) and Trader Joe's. A full list can be found here.

    Listeria isn't deadly for most people; it's typically the elderly and especially pregnant women and young children who may be susceptible to the worst effects. For most healthy adults, the symptoms are diarrhea, cramping, nausea, and fever. Treatment can vary slightly, but more serious infections can be treated with common antibiotics like amoxicillin. It's quite common in various foods, from dairy and meats to anything grown in the dirt. The good news is, listeria is easily killed off with proper cooking, and if stored frozen, will inhibit further bacterial growth. People who eat raw foods are especially vulnerable, and should use caution.
