Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
To date, public health officials have not reported any illness associated with these products.
Customers who may have purchased any of the recalled products are urged to dispose of them or return them to the store where they were purchased for an exchange or full refund.
