No illnesses were reported. Instead, the recall was announced after routine tests by the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) found Listeria monocytogenes on food-contact surfaces.
Eating food that is contaminated with Listeria can cause a serious, sometimes deadly type of food poisoning called listeriosis.
The symptoms of listeriosis may not appear for up to 70 days after a person eats contaminated food. The risk is greatest for young children, elderly adults, or people with vulnerable immune systems. Infected pregnant women may also suffer a miscarriage or stillbirth.
