Additionally, the recalled products bear the establishment number “EST. 54” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The FSIS discovered this issue during routine inspection activities where Listeria monocytogenes was found on surfaces in which the product came into contact. While there have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products, the FSIS is concerned that some products may be in consumers’ refrigerators. The agency is urging consumers who have purchased these products not to consume them. Instead, the items should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
Per the USDA, consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis—a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns.
Additionally, listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, and premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In older adults and persons with weakened immune systems, listeriosis can be serious and sometimes fatal.
However, listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. Persons in the higher-risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek medical care and tell their health care provider about consuming the contaminated product.
