What’s the Problem?
This recall affects all cases of 150g/5.3-ounce packages of Guan’s Seafood Mushroom (Product of China), which were distributed by Commerce, California-based California Terra Garden Inc., according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
“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 high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria monocytogenes can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.”
This recall was initiated after routine testing by the California Health Department revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in one 150g package of Guan’s Seafood Mushrooms.
The recalled mushrooms were distributed from California through produce distributors or wholesalers to retail stores nationwide. The product comes in a clear plastic package with the description “Seafood Mushroom” in English and French, and Guan’s logo in the front. The UPC code 859267007501 is on the back and product code 3460 is at the back top right.
If you purchased any seafood mushrooms that are affected by this recall, you should either throw them away or return them to the point of purchase for a full refund.
Consumers who are concerned about a potential listeria infection from recalled seafood mushrooms should contact their healthcare provider immediately.
This recall began on May 29, 2021.
