Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause foodborne illness in a person who eats a food item contaminated with it.  Symptoms of infection may include fever, muscle aches, gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea or diarrhea.  The illness primarily impacts pregnant women and adults with weakened immune systems.  Most healthy adults and children rarely become seriously ill.


Schnucks, Logli and Hilander customers may return the specified product to their nearest store for a full refund or exchange.

Customers with questions may contact the Dole Food Company Consumer Response Center at 1-800-356-3111 or the Schnucks Consumer Affairs department at 314-994-4400 or 1-800-264-4400.
