Busch’s Fresh Food Market Deli Products and Soups Recalls
|Date:||July 27, 2012|
|What:||Busch’s Fresh Food Market deli products and soups|
|Why:||Listeria monocytogenes contamination|
|Scope:||Busch’s Fresh Food Market stores|
Busch’s Fresh Food Market is initiating a recall of certain deli products and soups processed between the dates of July 20 through July 27, 2012 that contain onions produced by Gills Onions. The recall is in connection with an expanded recall announced by Gills Onions of their Peeled Whole Yellow Onions due to possible contamination with 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. 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.
All of the following products involved in this recall have been cooked and generally Listeria bacteria are killed in the cooking process. However, since Busch’s Fresh Food Market cannot guarantee that, the company is asking that all products should be discarded or returned for a full refund or replacement.
The products subject to recall are:
Busch’s Baked Mostaccioli
Busch’s Chicken Wet Burrito
Busch’s Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas
Busch’s Jambalaya with shrimp
Busch’s Down Home Lasagna
