Granola recalled nationwide due to possible listeria contamination
Wildway LLC is recalling their grain-free granola products nationwide for the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes.
The affected products include Trader Joe’s brand “grainless granola” and multiple varieties of the Wildway brand grain-free granola.
The company says they were notified by one of their suppliers that an ingredient used in the products could be contaminated.
According to the FDA recall announcement, no illnesses have been reported in relation to the affected products, but it can take up to 70 days after exposure for symptoms of a Listeria infection to develop.
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. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
