If you purchased any of these products do not eat them. If you ate one of these items before learning the recall, you should monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis, which can take up to 70 days to appear. Most of the time, symptoms begin in one to four weeks. The groups who suffer the most serious symptoms from this infection are the elderly, the very young, people with compromised immune systems, and pregnant women.
Listeriosis has the symptoms of high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, muscle aches, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Pregnant women can suffer miscarriage or stillbirth if they contract this infection, even though they may think they only have the flu. If you do feel sick, contact your doctor.
