Announcement

Eillien’s Candies Inc. , GREEN BAY, WI, is voluntarily recalling various snack products containing Roasted-Salted Sunflower Kernels and Roasted-Unsalted Sunflower Kernels because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, 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.
This recall is being conducted because Eillien’s was notified by SunOpta, the ingredient supplier, that the sunflower kernels may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes (L.mono). There have been no reported illnesses to date. However, Eillien’s Candies is initiating the voluntary recall in an abundance of caution to protect public health.
The following recalled products were distributed nationwide and are sold through retail stores:
