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.

According to the recall, consumers who purchased the recalled products should discard them or return them to the point of purchase.

Consumers can call the company’s customer service line at 800-729-3354 during normal business hours for more information.
