LANDOVER, Md., Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Giant Food of Landover, Md., following a recall by Veggie Patch, announced it removed from sale packages of ultimate meatless burgers due to possible contamination by listeria monocytogenes.
The following product is included in this recall:
Giant has received no reports of illnesses to date. Customers who have purchased the product should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to Giant for a full refund.
Listeria is a common organism found in nature. Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.
Consumers looking for additional information on the recall may call Veggie Patch customer service at (888) 698-3444. In addition customers may call Giant Customer Service at (888) 469-4426 for more information. Customers can also visit the Giant website at www.giantfood.com.
