All products subject to the recall have the number “EST.54” inside the USDA mark of inspection, according to the USDA. The FSIS found the possible contamination issue during a routine inspection when listeria was discovered on surfaces the product came into contact with. There have been no confirmed reports of illness associated with these products yet, according to the USDA.
Eating food contaminated with listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that can impact older adults, people with weak immune systems and pregnant women and newborns, according to the USDA. While less common, people outside of these groups can also be impacted.
Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms, according to the USDA. The infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of newborns. Additionally, serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and people with weak immune systems can occur. The infection caused by listeriosis is treated with antibiotics.
The FSIS reports it is concerned that some of the product could be in consumer’s refrigerators. Those who have purchased these products are urged to avoid eating them. The products should be thrown away or returned to their place of purchase.
