If you purchased this product, you should clean out your refrigerator or freezer with a solution of 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to 1 gallon of warm water. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures, unlike most pathogens. Freezing does not kill this bacteria. Take everything out of the fridge, wipe it down with the bleach solution, rinse, and dry. Then wipe down all packages with the bleach solution, rinse, and dry.

Wash your hands well with soap and water after cleaning and after handling this product.

If you did eat this product, you should monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis, the illness this bacteria causes. Those symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, aches and pains, chills, vomiting, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may only feel mildly ill with what seems like the flu, but listeriosis can cause miscarriage and stillbirth. If you do feel sick, see your doctor.
