There have been no reports of adverse reactions to eating impacted products as of yet: The presence of listeria was discovered during a routine inspection, where FSIS inspectors found Listeria monocytogenes on surfaces that the affected food products came into contact with.

If you think you’ve purchased these products, check your refrigerator: Impacted food products should be disposed of or returned to where they were purchased for a replacement. Consumers who have purchased these products should not eat them.

Listeria can cause a number of symptoms and be particularly hazardous for pregnant women, older adults, or those with weakened immune systems. High-risk people can experience flu-like symptoms for as long as two months after eating the contaminated food. If you become ill and you are high-risk, see your healthcare provider and let them know you may have eaten food contaminated by listeriosis, which can be treated.
