If you purchased any of these Kwik Trip Tastebuds taco products, or Haug Fresh Thyme Earthgrown products or the Caribou sandwich, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund. You can see pictures of product labels at the FDA web site.

Then clean out your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution to kill any bacteria. Listeria monocytogenes can grow at refrigerator temperatures and can become established in a moist environment. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after cleaning and after handling these recalled items.

If you ate any of these recalled products, watch for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms can include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea. This illness can cause miscarriage and stillbirth, even though a pregnant women may think she only has a mild case of the flu. If you do get sick, call your doctor.
