Recall alert: Frozen biscuits sold in Louisiana could have Listeria
Hom/Ade Foods, Inc is voluntarily recalling Mary B’s® brand biscuits due to potential Listeria contamination, according to a news release from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The problem was discovered in a product sampling conducted by an outside co-packer, who manufactured the product.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The Mary B’s products affected are frozen bagged biscuits with the UPC codes listed below. All “Best If Used By” dates BEFORE September 23, 2018 and with the letter “M” immediately after the date are included in the recall. The code may be found on the back of the bag, lower right corner. No other code dates are affected.
