Israeli frozen vegetable company Sunfrost has recalled frozen cut string beans after a piece of a snake was found in one of the packets. Following instructions from the Ministry of Health, the company is asking for customers to return 800 gram packages of cut string beans with barcode 729000012104720 for use by 2.1.2025 or 11.1.2025.
The company is also reviewing its entire control procedure on the beans production line in its plant including the manual and automatic sorting procedures. Sunfrost is contacting overseas experts in quality assurance to support the process.
This latest incident comes in the wake of the discovery two weeks ago of half a mouse in an individual packet of frozen full thin string beans. At the time, Sunfrost initiated the recall of all the relevant packets. The company has stressed that all its products undergo strict quality testing and these incidents are exceedingly rare and not typical of the company's products and that all other items are safe for use and consumption.
Following the latest incident, the company has said that it has decided to halt marketing of all bean products that have not left the factory and to check through all the packets.
