California Terra Garden Inc. of Commerce, California, recalled all cases of 150-gram packages of Guan’s Seafood Mushroom (Product of China) after a routine test by the California Health Department was positive for Listeria in one package of 150-gram Seafood Mushrooms.
Back in April and May, three additional recalls for enoki mushrooms were announced by Golden Medal Mushrooms Inc., Guan’s Mushroom Co., and Canada’s Goldenway International Trade Co.
Food that is contaminated with Listeria may not look or smell spoiled, but it can still cause severe and sometimes deadly infections.
The symptoms of a Listeria infection may include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, as well as miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
