Pinnacle Foods Recalls Aunt Jemima Products
Due to the presence of Listeria monocytogenes being detected in its products after testing, a New Jersey food company called Pinnacle Foods' is voluntarily issuing a recall of Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes, waffles and French toast.
The company issued the recall on May 8, and the recall affects frozen products distributed in the U.S. as well as Mexico.
Luckily, if you bought the company's dry mixes and syrups, you're all good to go, and those products were not included in the recall.
"We are working in coordination with the Food and Drug Administration," Pinnacle Foods said, according to CNN, about the recall.
No incidents of illnesses have been reported as of May 8, but if you have any of the Aunt Jemima products at home, you should either throw away the product or return it to the place you purchased it to receive a refund.
Listeria, for those who do not know, can cause serious illnesses in children, people with weakened immune systems, and the elderly -- so serious, in fact, that they can actually at times be fatal.
Additionally, it can cause miscarriages and stillbirths.
Don't take a chance, stay safe and don't consume the potentially contaminated food!
