usatoday.com – A recall of frozen biscuit products due to possible listeria contamination has prompted several supermarket chains to pull the products from shelves and urge consumers to return the products for refunds.
The stores – including Food Lion, Piggly Wiggly, Lowes Foods and more — took action after the manufacturer of the frozen biscuit dough products, T. Marzetti Co., announced a voluntary recall as a precautionary measure.
“Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems,” the T. Marzetti Co. said in a statement.
It can also cause short-term symptoms in healthy individuals “such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.”
No illnesses have been reported. The products were distributed in these 12 states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
Can’t be out here fucking up the biscuits yo!
