Muffins Recalled for Possible Listeria Contamination
Company says it has not received any reports of illness associated with the recalled products
THURSDAY, July 22, 2021 (HealthDay News) -- Possible Listeria contamination has triggered the nationwide recall of more than two dozen muffin products made by Give and Go Prepared Foods, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday.
The recalled products were sold across the country and include a variety of Uncle Wally's twin muffins, The Worthy Crumb large muffins, Stop n Shop mini muffins, 7-Eleven Selects muffins, Freshness Guaranteed mini muffins, Great Value snack muffins, Marketside muffins, and The Worthy Crumb Oreo mini muffins.
The company said it has not received any reports of illness associated with the recalled products.
Listeria infection may cause short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea in healthy people. However, it can be more serious or even fatal in young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women, the FDA said in a statement.
The agency said the company is "taking this action out of an abundance of caution."
