The U.S. Food and Drug Administration states that listeria is generally transmitted when food is harvested, processed, prepared, packed, transported or stored in environments that are contaminated.
"We became aware of this issue as part of our environmental monitoring program," the company said in a statement. "To date, we have received no reports of illness related to this issue and are taking this action out of an abundance of caution."
Symptoms from the bacteria can range from person to person and could last several days to several weeks, the FDA said. Mild symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
However, more severe symptoms could impact the very young, the elderly, and the immune-compromised listeriosis, and can result in worse symptoms or death. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The company said that any customers with the recalled products should immediately throw them away. Anyone with questions can contact the company at 1-844-366-1171 to obtain more information about the recall 24 hours a day.
