Listeria infection, or listeriosis, is a foodborne illness that most often occurs in children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with compromised immune systems. However, in rare cases, otherwise healthy adults can become infected as well. Signs and symptoms of listeriosis include:

  • Fever
  • Muscle aches
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea

If you purchased any of the recalled items, you should not eat them, and either discard them immediately or return them to the point of purchase for a recall.

To date, no listeria infections or any other illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled items, FDA said.
