Frozen waffles, pancakes and French toast products made by Aunt Jemima are being recalled due to the potential presence of Listeria. The recall affects all packages of Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes, waffles and French toast slices, regardless of Best By date. Testing indicated the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the plant where the products are produced.
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 infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
All affected distributors and retail and food service customers are being notified and the affected products are being removed from store shelves.
This announcement applies only to the Aunt Jemima frozen products listed below and does not include any Aunt Jemima dry mixes and syrups.
