Reason Recall

The recall was issued because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to the FDA.

"Listeria monocytogens (is) an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems," the FDA states. "Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women."
