If you purchased these products, do not fed them to your pet. Throw them away in a double wrapped package in a covered garbage can with a secure lid, or take them back to the store where you purchased them for a refund.

It’s important to then clean out your refrigerator or freezer with a mild bleach solution. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can grow at temperatures below 40°F, and freezing doesn’t kill it. Wash your hands well with soap and water after cleaning and after handling these products.

The symptoms of listeriosis are the same in people and animals. They can appear up to 70 days after the initial infection. Symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, muscle aches, and high fever, severe headache. If your pet is ill, take her to the vet. Pets can transmit this infection to people.

If you start experiencing these symptoms, it’s important to see a doctor. Pregnant women are the most vulnerable to this illness, and can suffer miscarriages, premature labor, and stillbirth, even though they only have a mild illness that is similar to the flu.
