We’re told Listeria is a bacterium that can result in severe illness or death, especially among young people, the elderly or those with compromised immune systems. Infection from Listeria can also result in stillbirths and miscarriages in pregnant women, the FDA tells us.
No illnesses have been reported in connection to any of the recalls.
Consumers of the affected products are asked to return them for a refund.
