EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - U.S. Food and Drug Administration:
As a precautionary measure, T. Marzetti Company is voluntarily recalling all "Best By" dates of the following products that were distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia, because they may have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Consumers should not consume these products. No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled items.
This announcement applies only to the specific frozen biscuit dough products listed below and does not include any other items produced by T. Marzetti Company or other items under the brands listed below.
All "Best By" dates of the following products are included in this recall:
Although these products are not ready-to-eat items and have baking instructions which, if followed, will reduce consumer risk, there remains some risk that the mishandling of this product prior to or without adequate baking may cause illness.
We are working in coordination with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and our supplier on this recall.
All affected distributors and retail customers are being notified and the affected products are being removed from store shelves.
