Recent Listeria Recalls

Recent Listeria Recalls

Some types of food poisoning are more common than others. For example, you tend to hear more reports of Listeria and Salmonella outbreaks than Campylobacter and Shigellosis. Although you might feel like you hear about Listeria every other week, do not brush it off as unimportant. It is important, and knowing which affected food products to avoid is how you can protect yourself and your family from falling ill with Listeriosis, which can have serious complications if it is not treated correctly. This is especially true for individuals with weakened immune systems, such as the elderly, pregnant women, and young children.

Keep yourself aware of the latest food recalls by regularly checking recalls.gov. Also take note of the types of foods that tend to be affected by Listeria, like soft cheeses, deli meats, and smoked seafood, and if these foods are a regular part of your household's diet, pay close attention to any recalls of brands that you buy. If you or your child do contract listeria or any other type of food poisoning and suffer complications that lead to financial damages, consider seeking compensation for your damages through a personal injury claim.

HMS Host is a company that operates food retailers at rest areas and airport terminals throughout the country. Recently, it has to recall multiple brands of trail mix sold at its outlets, including Fresh Attractions, Urban Market, The Local, and Grounded In.

Hy-Vee Chicken Meal Recall

Supermarket chain Hy-Vee recently recalled its frozen Chicken and Vegetable Fried Rice meal on the suspicion of Listeria contamination. This was not the only frozen chicken dish recall this year due to Listeria concerns – ANJOY chicken fried rice was recalled by distributor Garland Ventures and Ajinmoto Windsor recalled 47 million pounds of these kinds of products and others due, like frozen appetizers, for this reason.

The Vending Nut Company Sunflower Seed Recall and Other Nut and Seed Recalls

In May 2016, The Vending Nut Company recalled packages of its sunflower kernel snacks due to possible Listeria contamination. 2016 has actually been a fairly active year for nut and seed snack recalls due to Listeria concerns, with other companies recalling these types of product as well. Supermarket chain Publix recalled its Cranberry Nut and Seed Mix, United Natural Trading recalled its walnuts and other products containing walnuts, and Uncle Buck's Sweet & Salty Trail Mix, a snack product sold in Bass Pro Shops, was also recalled for this reason.
