If you purchased this product, do not eat it, even if you plan to cook it first. The potential for cross-contamination is too great. Throw the mushrooms away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the store where you bought them for a full refund.

Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes will not look, taste, or smell spoiled but can make you very sick. Symptoms of listeriosis, the illness caused by this pathogen, can take up to 70 days to appear. Symptoms may include a high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, muscle aches, nauseas, and diarrhea. Pregnant women may suffer miscarriages or stillbirth even though their illness is mild. If you have eaten these mushrooms and feel sick, see your doctor.

You should also clean out your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution to kill any remaining bacteria. 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 handling this product.
