FSIS discovered the problem during routine inspection activities where Listeria monocytogenes was found on surfaces with which the product came in contact.
There have been no confirmed reports of adverse effects due to the consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about injury or illness should contact a health care provider.
Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that mainly affects the elderly, people with weakened immune systems, pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, people outside these risk groups are affected.
Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle pain, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and seizures sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, premature delivery, or life-threatening infection of the newborn. Also, serious and sometimes fatal infections in the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. People in high-risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months of eating contaminated food should seek medical attention and notify the health care provider about eating contaminated food.
FSIS is concerned that some products are in consumers’ refrigerators. Consumers who have purchased these products are asked not to consume them. These products should be discarded or returned to the place of purchase.
FSIS regularly conducts recall effectiveness checks to ensure that recalling companies are notifying their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to ensure that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, retail distribution lists will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
