Items included in the recall have lot #R17742 or R17963 on the back of the bag with a best by date of 9/10/23.
Listeria infections are known to cause serious and even fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly individuals and those with immunocompromised immune systems. Healthy individuals, on the other hand, might experience symptoms that include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Infections during pregnancy can result in miscarriages and stillbirths.
According to authorities, there have been no reported illnesses in relation to this incident.
