The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Give & Go Prepared Foods Corp. announced on Monday a voluntary recall of muffin and muffin-related products for a concern of possible listeria contamination via The Hill.
The company was alerted that there may be a problem with their items by an environmental monitoring program. The items are sold in Walmart, 7-Eleven, Stop & Shop and other stores. The recalled products, including muffins labeled The Worthy Crumb and Uncle Wally's, can be found on the FDA's website.
Give & Go says they have yet to receive reports of people getting sick but they are “taking this action out of an abundance of caution.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the people who have to worry the most are pregnant women, newborns and older adults with compromised immune systems. Healthy people may feel short-term side effects like nausea and stomach pain.
“Consumers who have these products should immediately dispose of the products and not eat them. Consumers should make a note of the lot code of the products, which is found on the label, and provide it if they contact us,” the company said in a statement.
