    Canned and frozen corn could be the cause of food poisoning. Canned corn has been recalled numerous times for Clostridium botulinum contamination, which results in a botulism infection. Similarly, frozen corn has been recalled on several occasions for Listeria contamination. Both infections can result in severe illness.
