T. Marzetti Company Voluntarily Recalls Various Brands Due to Potential Listeria Contamination
As a precautionary measure, T. Marzetti Company issued a voluntarily recall on December 29, 2017, for “Best By” dates of the following products because they may have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
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.
Consumers should not consume these products. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled items.
This announcement applies only to the specific frozen biscuit dough products listed below and does not include any other items produced by T. Marzetti Company or other items under the brands listed below.
All “Best By” dates of the following products are included in this recall:
