If you bought this product, do not eat it. Discard it in a sealed or otherwise double bagged package and put it into a secure garbage can. You can also take it back to the place of purchase for a refund.

Wash your hands well after handling this product. Then sanitize your fridge with a mild bleach solution, since Listeria bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures. Freezing does not kill this bacteria.

If you ate this product, watch yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. That’s how long it can take to get sick with this bacteria. Symptoms include high fever, stiffness, nausea, severe headache, and abdominal pain and diarrhea. If you do feel ill, especially if you are pregnant, call your doctor and tell him about this problem.
