The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 19276” or “P-19276” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to a distributor in Florida for further distribution.

The problem was discovered when the FDA notified USDA that the firm may have produced USDA-regulated products on dates that FDA food contact surface samples tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions or illnesses due to consumption of these products.

Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.
