Corn recalled in Indiana over listeria concerns

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Corn in Indiana has been recalled over concerns it could be contaminated with listeria, a bacteria that could make people sick.

The company Bonduelle USA has recalled frozen corn that was distributed to Indiana and 13 other states.

Affected products and codes, according to the FDA, are:

  • WYLWOOD Super Sweet Whole Kernel Corn, NET WT. 16 OZ (1 LB), UPC 051933002401, Codes: Best By June 2017 K51564 and K51574;
