These products were processed by Pero Family Farms Food Company, LLC and distributed under the Pero Family Farms Label from Jan. 2, 2021 – Jan. 11, 2021, in the following U.S. states: Louisiana, Florida, Texas, New York, Maine, Georgia, Ohio, Virginia, Alabama, Virginia and Missouri.

The recalled butternut squash is packaged in flexible clear plastic containers with labeling on the top and bottom of the container or in a clear plastic bag. The product run number code and “use by” date can be found on the front bottom right hand corner of the tray package or on the package.

This recall was issued because the above items may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, “… an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems,” FDA said. “Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.”

If you purchased any butternut squash that is affected by this recall, you should not eat it, and either discard it or return it to the point of purchase for a refund.

Anyone concerned about a potential food poisoning illness from recalled butternut squash products should contact their healthcare provider immediately.

This recall began on January 19, 2021.
