There were no reported pet or human illnesses associated with this recall. 

 

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Listeria infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.

 

Animals ill with Listeria will display symptoms similar to those seen in humans.

 

People who have concerns about whether their pet has symptoms associated with Listeria infection should contact their veterinarian.
