    • Linda Larsen says:

      Do the products also have the letter “M” after the date? Those are the only products that are recalled.

      • TheI love these biscuits ,I just fed these biscuits to my family ,two days in a row and they are on the recall . The dates on these are July And August 2018 . What should I do . We have the bags of the last four and they all have m after the date . We have been eating these biscuits all thru Christmas ,my grandson ate 3 last night .

        • Linda Larsen says:

          Watch yourself and your family for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next two months. If anyone does get sick, take them to a doctor and tell her that you ate these recalled biscuits.

  2. Joanna Moore says:

    What if you have already cooked, eaten & served the biscuits to family & friends during the holidays. I have thrown the bag away and have no way of checking the used-by date or the M following it.

    • Linda Larsen says:

      Just tell your family about this and tell them to watch themselves for the symptoms of listeriosis. The odds that you or your family or friends will get sick is quite low. Baking does destroy Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. The risk was in how the biscuits were handled, since there is potential for cross-contamination. Try not to worry too much about it; just be aware.

  3. Ebony D. Kelly says:

    This is really sad to know, I’ve been a customer of the Mary B biscuits for years, and to know that listeriosis was found in this item is devastating, especially since, while eating these items almost daily, could had been the cause of me having a miscarriage, and two of my children being born early. And another thing is the Hummaid food company called me to inform me of this issue. Im lost for words. And its sad because i love Mary B biscuits
