At least 4 people have been hospitalized after eating Long Phung anchovy-marinated pork patty rolls. Reports of listeria associated with the spring rolls have been reported in Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee and Michigan.

An estimated 1,600 people get the illness each year, and about 260 die from resulting complications. Listeria is most likely to sicken pregnant women and their newborns, adults aged 65 or older, and people with weakened immune systems.

CDC is advising consumers who have any of the recalled product in their possession to discard it immediately or return it to the place of purchase for a recall. Shelves and drawers where the pork patties were storied should be washed with warm, soapy water and sanitized.
