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. 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 stillbirth among pregnant women.

As noted, no illnesses have been reported to date relative to this limited recall, which is a proactive step being taken by Club Chef due to a limited number of positive test results discovered by the company in portions of their facility during internal environmental monitoring during a specific period. Because the products identified for this recall still have remaining shelf life, retailers who received the batches noted above have been contacted and asked to pull all such product from their inventory and shelves, and Club Chef is in the process of confirming that the recalled product is being removed from the stream of commerce. Consumers who have any remaining product with these Product Codes and Use by Dates should not consume them, but should instead discard the product. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Retailers and consumers with questions may call Club Chef at 866-458-3188, which is open 8:00am-5:00pm ET and you can leave a message after hours.
