Listeria infections can cause a number of symptoms and can sometimes be fatal in young children and the elderly. People with weak immune systems are also susceptible. Symptoms can include fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Listeria infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recall was ordered after a routine sampling done by the FDA found the presence of Listeria monocytogenes.

If you have purchased any of the recalled products you are encouraged to bring it back to the store from which it was purchased and get a full refund.
