Packaged muffins recalled due to possible listeria contamination
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — More than two dozen types of pre-packaged muffins are being recalled over potential listeria contamination.
According to the FDA, Give and Go Prepared Foods Corporation became aware of the possible contamination as part of their environmental monitoring program. The company says they have not received any reports of illness and are only taking this action "out of an abundance of caution."
The muffins were sold nationwide in retail stores, including 7-Eleven, Walmart, and Sam’s Club, under various brand names, including Uncle Wally’s and The Worthy Crumb.
The company says consumers who have any of the 26 muffin products should immediately throw them away.
A full list of the muffins affected by the recall can be found on the FDA’s website.
Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
