Sam’s Club Recalls Blue Crab Spread for Listeria

Sam’s Club is recalling Blue Crab Spread made by GoldCoast Salads for possible contamination with Listeria moncytogenes. The products under recall are 8 oz and 1 lb containers with a code EXP 1-31-13. Consumers who have purchased this product should not eat it.

RecallThe product was produced December 3, 2012, by GoldCoast Salads based in Naples, Fla. and distributed to stores in the northeastern  and southeastern part of the United States.

Listeria monocytogenes is a pathogen that can cause serious, sometimes fatal injury. About 90 percent of people who develop Listeria infections, called listeriosis, are hospitalized. Symptoms of an infection can take up to two months after exposure to develop.  They include stomachache, diarrhea, fever, muscle aches, stiff neck, headache, loss of balance, and convulsions. Among pregnant women, listeriosis can cause miscarriage or stillbirth.

Listeria  is found in a variety of raw foods, including uncooked meats, fruits and vegetables. Pasteurization or cooking  kills Listeria, but some  foods can be contaminated after being prepared such as soft cheeses, hot dogs, deli meat and smoked seafood.  In recent weeks there have been a number of smoked salmon recalls. Consumers who believe they have eaten any of these recalled seafood products and develop symtoms should see a health care provider.
