Fullei Fresh Recalls Organic Bean Sprouts For Possible Listeria

Fullei Fresh of Miami, Florida is recalling Organic Bean Sprouts because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

Organic Bean Sprouts were shipped to Whole Foods Markets in Florida and Freedom Fresh, which is a Miami distributor, on February 18, 2019.  The product is packaged in 4 ounce plastic clamshells with lot code 041 and a sell by date of February 28, 2019. The UPC number on the product is 017442052108. All codes and number are printed in black ink on the package label.

The Florida Department of Agriculture pulled a sample from a store shelf and then told the company about the need for a recall.

If you purchased this product, don’t eat it, even if you plan to cook it. Throw it away after first wrapping it on plastic wrap. Put the package into a secure garbage can so other people and animals can’t get at it. You can also take it back to the place of purchase for a refund.

Clean out your refrigerator with a solution of 1 tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to one gallon of warm water after you throw away the sprouts. Wipe down packages in the fridge, then rinse and dry everything. Wash your hands well after you handle this product.

The symptoms of listeriosis, the illness caused by this bacteria, include a fever, stiff neck, headache, nausea, and diarrhea. Those symptoms can take up to 70 days to appear. If you do feel sick, especially if you are pregnant or elderly, and have eaten this product, see your doctor.
