Advanced Fresh Concepts Franchise Corp. (“AFC”) of Rancho Dominguez, CA has recalled its Edamame Soybeans in Pods for possibility being contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The products were packaged by AFC Franchisees and sold, under refrigeration, in 8.0 oz (227 g) packages and identified as “Edamame – Soybeans in Pods”.  To further identify the recalled product, look for UPC 0-23012-00261-9, dated between 01/03/2017 and 03/17/2017. AFC’s Quality Assurance Program discovered the contamination during random testing.

The packed Edamame was sold at designated retail sushi counters within grocery stores, cafeterias, and corporate dining centers 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.

Consumers concerned about whether the Edamame they purchased is subject to this recall should check with the store of purchase. Consumers who have purchased the recalled product should not consume it and return it to the point of purchase for a full refund.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections especially in young children, frail or older adults, pregnant women, and others with weakened immune systems. Others may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths and fetal infection among pregnant women.

No illnesses associated with the recall have yet been reported. AFC has notified all retail locations of the recall. Therefore, the product should no longer be available for purchase.
