GHGA is recalling various products (see chart below) due to the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. No other GHGA products are affected by this recall.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that 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, a Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
To date, we are not aware of any illnesses linked to this recall.
On 9/16/22, the firm was notified by their laboratory that a single sample of a product tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.
This is a list of the products affected:
The products were sold to Kroger and distributed to retail stores on 9/11/22. The Sell-by Date has expired, and products were previously removed from store shelves and are no longer for sale. However, products could still be in the possession of consumers. The Sell By Dates and Lot numbers are located on the top primary label of each product. These products were packaged in clear plastic containers and sold primarily in Kroger stores in the produce or deli sections in the states of Alabama, South Carolina, and Georgia.
Consumers who have purchased these products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund, or they may discard the product. Consumers with questions can call Customer Service at (888) 449-9386.
GHGA has notified Kroger, and they have directed their stores to remove the products from the shelves.
