What’s the problem?
March 29, 2012 - The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today that Mosul Kubba is recalling the following products because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes:
- 2-lb. vacuum-packed packages containing two, 10-inch pieces of “KUBBA OF WHEAT.”
- 20-lb. cases, each containing 10, 2-lb. packages of “KUBBA OF WHEAT.”
Case labels or packaging of these products may bear the case code 12082, as well as the establishment number “EST. 21576” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The listeria contamination was identified during routine testing conducted by the FSIS. To date, there have been no illnesses reported in connection with this recall. Anyone concerned about listeria food poisoning should contact their healthcare provider 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. Sadly, between 50 and 90% of infected fetuses that are delivered prematurely do not survive.
