The company said that the warning is applicable to all the strawberry smoothies that have been purchased from the stores in Arizona, Southern Nevada and Southern California within the period of November 25 - December 1 2006.

The warning was announced after one of its suppliers, Cleugh's Frozen Foods of Salinas, said that it had found the bacterium, Listeria monocytogenes in one of the company's frozen strawberries.

It can lead to miscarriages and stillbirths when this bacterium infects pregnant women and they have to be more cautious.
