Danger Might Be Lurking in Your Breakfast if You Have These Aunt Jemima Products in Your Home
As the Recall Reaper, it’s my job to tell you what you really shouldn’t be using or eating, and today is no exception.
The FDA has announced that Pinnacle Foods issued a major voluntary recall of a number of Aunt Jemima products due to possible listeria contamination.
From the FDA:
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.
