ALERT: Aunt Jemima Issues National Frozen Breakfast Food Recall Due To ‘Listeria’ Contamination

Pinnacle Foods Inc., a New Jersey-based food company has issued a national recall on Aunt Jemima frozen breakfast foods due to possible contamination of Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

The recall is on Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes, frozen waffles and frozen french toast slices

Listeriosis is a serious infection usually caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. An estimated 1,600 people get listeriosis each year, and about 260 die. The infection is most likely to sicken pregnant women and their newborns, adults aged 65 or older, and people 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.

ALERT: This recall includes ALL “BEST BY” dates meaning that if you have these in your freezer do not consume these products!
