If you purchased these mushrooms, do not eat them, even if you plan to cook them first. You can throw them away in a sealed or double bagged package in a secure trash can, or you can take them back to the store where you purchased them for a full refund.

You should then clean your refrigerator using a mild bleach solution to destroy any pathogens. Listeria monocytogenes bacteria grows at temperatures below 40°F and freezing doesn’t kill it. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling this item and after cleaning.

If you ate these mushrooms, monitor your health for the symptoms of listeriosis, which can take up to 70 days to appear. People who are most affected by this pathogen include the elderly, the very young, pregnant women, and anyone with a chronic illness or compromised immune system. If you do get sick, call your doctor.
