Listeria monocytogenes is a pathogenic bacteria that can cause listeriosis. Listeriosis can cause fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea in healthy people.

However, the infection can be fatal for some people. Pregnant women and their newborns, adults over the age of 65 and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

An estimated 1,600 people are infected with listeriosis each year and about 260 die, according to the CDC.

Mann Packaging says that customers should throw out any affected products. If customers have questions, they should call the company at 1-844-927-0707 or email the company
