If you bought either of these products, do not eat them. You can throw them away in a sealed or double bagged package inside a secure trash can or you can take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

You should then clean your refrigerator with a solution of one tablespoon liquid chlorine bleach to one gallon of warm water to kill any pathogens. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures and freezing doesn’t kill it.

If you ate these items, monitor your health for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. That’s how long it can take for symptoms to appear. Most people do not have severe symptoms, but certain populations, including the elderly, the very young, anyone with a compromise immune system, and with chronic illnesses, can get very sick.

Symptoms of listeriosis include a high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, and muscle aches, which are often preceded by nausea and diarrhea. Pregnant women can suffer miscarriage and stillbirth with this infection even though their illness is mild. If you do get sick, see your doctor.
