Here is yet another one.
Xin Ao International Group Corp of Linden, NJ, is recalling its 200 grams packages of “Sss Enoki Mushroom” and “K-Fresh Mushroom”, because it has the potential to be contaminated with 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. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
