Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail, or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems
Hom/Ade Foods is recalling Mary B's brand biscuits due to potential contamination with listeria monocytogenes.
Risks of Listeria
Listeria is an organism which 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.
