Atlanta--The Georgia Department of Agriculture is alerting consumers about a food recall involving a frozen winter squash.

Birds Eye Foods is voluntarily recalling frozen Cooked Winter Squash packed in a 12-oz. carton, under certain store brands (listed below), and the Birds Eye brand, which have an eight digit code beginning with one of the following characters: "5CF," "5JE" or "6JE," because some of the products were tainted with ammonia.

After receiving consumer complaints - fewer than a dozen - about the squash, Birds Eye Foods initiated its established investigative process, including the involvement of a third party laboratory. On Friday, November 17, that independent lab confirmed a problem with one store brand product.

Therefore, as a precautionary measure, Birds Eye Foods is voluntarily recalling all the squash product codes mentioned while it works closely with the appropriate agencies to resolve the issue.  No other Birds Eye Foods products are involved.

The presence of ammonia may cause headache, nausea, vomiting, and irritation of the throat.

The Birds Eye brand frozen Cooked Winter Squash codes in question as well as store brand labels are distributed nationally. In total, these brand and store brand products represent approximately three million packages sold.
