Some of this product may be in consumers’ home freezers. If you purchased this product, which is heat-treated, not fully cooked, and not shelf stable, do not eat it. Throw it away, even if you intend to cook it, or return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Then clean out your freezer or refrigerator with a mild bleach solution, since Listeria bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures and freezing will not kill it.
If you ate any of this product, watch yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. If you do feel sick, see your doctor.
