What’s the problem?
April 30, 2012 - The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a press release today informing the public that Henry’s Farm Inc. is recalling the following soybean sprout products because they may be contaminated with listeria:
- All clear plastic packages containing 1.5 lbs. Grown in Natural Spring Water Soybean Sprouts
- All bulk (approximately 10 lbs.) plastic bags of Soybean Sprouts
- All clear plastic packages containing 1 lb. Grown in Natural Spring Water Natto Soybean Sprouts
The packaging of these products was neither labeled nor coded. Consumers who may have purchased any of the above-listed sprouts should discard them immediately or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The contamination was discovered after routine testing by the Virginia Division of Consolidated Laboratory Services (VDACS) revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall. Anyone concerned about a listeria food poisoning illness should consult their doctor immediately.

Listeria Food Poisoning & Pregnancy
According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), pregnant women are some 20 times more likely to contract listeriosis than other healthy adults. In fact, nearly 20% of listeriosis cases reported are in expecting mothers. However, pregnant women do not typically exhibit telltale signs of the illness, and usually only report mild, flu-like symptoms. Instead, babies of mothers with listeria food poisoning most often bear the brunt of the sickness. Between 50 and 90% of infected fetuses that are delivered prematurely do not survive.
