New England Natural Bakers is voluntarily recalling the following products shipped to you:
Product – lot code – 021018 UNFI Product # 056926
See attachment - label
The recall has been initiated because we have been notified by an ingredient supplier, HVF Inc. Bedemco, that an ingredient used in these products was recalled due to the potential to be contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes(see attached recall notification letter from HVF).
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. Healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Immediately examine your inventory and quarantine all product subject to the recall. If the product is in the marketplace it must be recalled immediately, if the product is in your possession it must be removed from inventory/quarantined, and you should await further instructions.
No illnesses have been reported in relation to this product at this time.
This recall should be carried out to the consumer level.
This recall is being made with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration.
