So far, there is evidence of adverse reactions and people getting sick reported, but Listeria is nothing to mess around with.

The CDC says signs and symptoms can vary, depending on the person. The bacteria are most likely to sicken people who are pregnant and their newborns, adults aged 65 or older, and people with weakened immune systems. Other people can be infected with Listeria, but they rarely become seriously ill.

  • Headache
  • Stiff neck

All Trader Joe's shoppers who bought any of these products are urged to throw the affected products away or return them for refunds.
