Products may be contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes
St. Louis MO, 2016-May-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Quaker Oats Company is recalling a small quantity of Quaker Quinoa Granola bars after an ingredient supplier was found to have distributed sunflower kernels that may be contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes. There have been no reported illnesses to date in connection with this product.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others 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.
