Most of the stores are in California, but there are also stores in Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington that are included. This list may not include all retail establishments that received the recall product, or may include stores that did not receive the products. The actual list of recalled products is the most accurate determination.

In this outbreak, the patient case count by state is: Arizona (4), California (8), Colorado (4), Florida (1), Georgia (1), Nevada (1), North Carolina (1), Oregon (1), Tennessee (2), Texas (2), and Washington (1). The patient age range is from less than one to 88 years. Illness onset dates range from June 15, 2014 to December 10, 2023. Two patients, one who lived in California and one who lived in Texas, died. The outbreak investigation was last updated on February 9, 2024.

Please look at the list of recalled products carefully, and look at the list of retail establishments that may have carried these products. If you did buy any of these products, do not eat them, even if you plan to cook with them, because of the possibility of cross-contamination. Throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.

After you discard these items, clean your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution to kill any pathogens. Listeria bacteria can grow at refrigerator temperatures and freezing does not kill it.

If you ate any of these recalled items, monitor your health for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. That’s how long it can take for symptoms to manifest after infection. If you do get sick, see your doctor.
