A company in Pasco that recalled hundreds of frozen vegetable products after a Listeria outbreak -- has had to lay off over 240 of its employees.

Frozen vegetables are a staple in many diets, so a huge recall of them has us peering at the packages in our freezers.

On Tuesday evening, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced an outbreak of the deadly Listeria monocytogenes bacteria — and frozen vegetables and fruits are believed to be the cause.
