If you purchased this product, do not eat it, even if you plan to cook it first, because of the potential of cross-contamination. Throw the mushrooms away after first wrapping the container in foil or plastic wrap. Put it into a secure garbage can. You can take the mushrooms back to the place of purchase for a refund.

Then clean out your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution to kill any pathogens. Listeria monocytogenes can grow at refrigerator temperatures and freezing doesn’t kill it. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after cleaning and after touching the mushrooms.

If you have eaten this product, watch out for symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Symptoms include stiff neck, high fever, serious headache, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may think they have a mild case of the flu, but listeriosis can cause stillbirth, miscarriage, premature labor, and infection in the newborn. If you do feel ill, call your doctor.
