What Is Listeria and Why Should I Be Concerned About This Recall

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention define listeria as a bacterium that can cause an infection when eaten.  And while the cases are few, about 1,600 across the US, they are more dangerous for pregnant women, seniors, and those with compromised immune systems.  Even with few cases reported, it is one of the more deadly bacteria, killing near 260 people each year.

If you have purchased any of the above with a best buy date of August 24, 2024, you are encouraged to throw it out.  You may also return them to the store you purchased the product at for a full refund.  If you have more questions, you can email the company here, or contact them via phone at (843)-695-9806.
