Food Products Recalled Due To Possible Listeria Contamination
"Listeriosis is a serious infection usually caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. An estimated 1,600 people get listeriosis each year, and about 260 die. The infection is most likely to sicken pregnant women and their newborns, adults aged 65 or older, and people with weakened immune systems."
Over 400 food products sold under several brand names were recalled due to possible listeria contamination.
The recall by Fresh Ideation Food Group LLC includes ready-to-eat sandwiches, salads, yogurts, wraps, and other products sold in nine states, including North and South Carolina from January 24th through the 30th.
The recall was initiated after the company’s environmental samples tested positive for listeria monocytogenes.
Recalled items include:
- Cheddar Muffins
- Breakfast Croissants
- Tuna and Chicken Sandwiches
- Fruit Cups
… and more!
The company said recalled products were sold in stores, vending machines and by transportation providers.
“All recalled products have a Fresh Creative Cuisine label and/or identifier on the bottom of the label with the Fresh Creative Cuisine name and a fresh through or sell through date ranging from January 31, 2023 through February 6, 2023”
