If you purchased these products, do not eat them, even if you plan to heat them thoroughly first. The possible risk of cross-contamination exists. Throw them away in a sealed container or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

If you ate any of these products, monitor your health for the symtpoms of listeriosis, which can take up to 70 days to appear. These symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, muscle aches, vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea.  Pregnant women may only have a mild illness that seems like the flu, but listeriosis can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, and infection in the newborn. If you do get sick, see your doctor.
