Silver Spring, MD, 2016-Jun-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — Brown & Haley of Tacoma, Washington is taking the precautionary measure of expanding its voluntary recall to include one additional lot of Mountain Thins “Trail Mix” flavor that may be impacted by sunflower seeds contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, 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.
This follows the announcement on May 31, 2016, by the company’s supplier SunOpta of its expanded recall of sunflower seeds which have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.
No illnesses have been reported to date. No other types, varieties or flavors of Brown & Haley or Mountain products are impacted by this recall. Brown & Haley is committed to the health and wellness of each and every consumer, and is taking this action in an abundance of caution.
