If you purchased this product, do not eat it, even if you plan to heat it first. Throw it away in a sealed or double bagged package in a secure garbage can, or take it back to the store where you bought it for a refund.

You should then 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.

If you ate this product, watch your health for symptoms of listeriosis, which can take up to 70 days to appear. If you do feel sick, see your doctor.
