Frozen Vegetables Recall 2010: Glass Fragments Fueled Kroger Recalls

Late on Saturday October 16,2010 Tennessee- based company Pictsweet Co. of Bells sent out a press release to let the media and the public know that there is a voluntary recall of frozen vegetables.

The company explained that the recall only concerns packages from Kroger containing frozen vegetables such as peas, carrots and mix veggies that were sold in Wal-Mart and at Kroger stores in the Southeast areas in the United States.

The enterprise is pushing the recall because the bags of veggies may contain glass fragments.
Thus far there has been no reports of injuries but they are taking precautionary measures in order to prevent injuries and other health issues that can be caused if people accidentally swallow the pieces of glass that inexplicably landed in the packages.
