Del Monte Foods Inc. is recalling more than 64,000 cases of canned corn because the corn did not go through the entire sterilization process and could cause life-threatening illness if eaten.

The company recalled 64,242 cases of Fiesta Corn Seasoned with Red & Green Peppers due to under-processing, the company told the Food & Drug Administration on Wednesday.

The deviation from the commercial sterilization process could result in contamination by spoilage organisms or pathogens, Del Monte Foods said.

That in turn could lead to life-threatening illness if consumed, the company says. 

There have been no reports of illness associated with the products.

The 15.25-ounce cans of corn have the UPC number “24000 02770” on the label.

The cans will also have “Best if Used By” the following dates:

  • August 14, 2021
  • August 15, 2021
  • August 16, 2021
  • Sept 3, 2021
  • Sept 4, 2021
  • Sept 5, 2021
  • Sept 6, 2021
  • Sept 22, 2021
  • Sept 23, 2021

The product was sold in 25 states, including New York.
