A variety of packaged food sold at Target and The Fresh Market were recalled over possible listeria contamination. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), listeria is an organism that can cause serious infection when consumed and can even be fatal in some cases.
Elevation Foods is recalling egg salads, tuna salads, Thai lobster salads and deviled egg sandwiches sold under the Archer Farms and Freskët brands, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Listeria was found in three containers of egg salad after the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Safety tested them, but so far no illnesses have been reported. The recalled products were manufactured at its Knoxville, Tenn. facility and the company said it believes fewer than 1,087 cases of the products have been shipped to retailers.
According to the notice, customers who have already bought the recalled items are encouraged to return them for a full refund. The full set of recalled products are listed on the notice.
