CARSON (AP) — A California company is voluntarily recalling its seafood salad products because they could possibly be contaminated with Listeria.
Carson, Calif.-based Frankly Fresh, Inc. says the products are packed under the Frankly Fresh label in a variety of sizes in plastic containers with affected code dates between March 19 and April 23, 2011.
The products were distributed through retail supermarket stores in California and Nevada.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.
The company says the bacterium was discovered during a routine sampling program by the FDA and Frankly Fresh.
Anyone who purchased the product is urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
So far, no illnesses have been reported.
