K-Fresh and Sss brand enoki mushrooms sold at 99 Ranch Supermarkets in Maryland have been recalled for Listeria.

The problem was discovered through routine sampling by the Maryland Department of Health. The company has ceased production and distribution of the product, according to the recall. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating how the contamination occurred.

Symptoms of a Listeria infection include high fever, severe headache, stiff neck, other muscle stiffness, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions. Sometimes those symptoms are preceded by a stomachache, abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea. Symptoms of a Listeria infection often appear within a day of exposure but can sometimes take as long as 70 days to develop. Pregnant women who contract Listeria infections can suffer a miscarriage or stillbirth even if they only experience mild flu-like symptoms.
