Eat Just, Inc., based in Alameda, Calif., is recalling certain lots of JUST Egg Chopped Spring Greens products citing potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
The recalled products include Spring Green Flavor – Ground Egg and Vegetables 6 x 12 oz. with case code 10191011001029 and UPC code 1 91011 00101 5.
Expiry dates and lot numbers are FOR USE BEFORE JUNE 10, 2023 1612; FOR USE BEFORE JUNE 29, 2023 1802; and FOR USE BEFORE JUNE 30, 2023 1812.
The recalled product was distributed to a limited number of retail stores located in five states, AZ, CA, OK, LA and TX.
To date, a total of 21 packages of the recalled product have been sold to consumers.
The agency noted that the recalled lots tested negative for Listeria monocytogenes before leaving the manufacturing facility. However, another lot that shares ingredients with the recalled lots has tested positive. The batch that tested positive has not been made public.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the frail or elderly, and others with weakened immune systems.
Healthy people may only experience short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, but the infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.
However, the company has not received any reports of illness related to the recalled products to date.
Customers who purchased any of the recalled products may receive a full refund at the point of purchase.
Citing potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination, Primal Pet Foods recalled a single batch of raw frozen primary patties for dog beef formula in early July, and Northern Tier Bakery, LLC, based in St. Paul Park, Minn., has recalled in June approximately 905 pounds of ready-to-eat or RTE salads.
