Rucker’s Wholesale and Service Co of Bridgeport, IL is voluntarily recalling Sunflower Kernels, Sweet & Salty Mix, and Cajun Hot Mix 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 headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Sunflower Kernels, Sweet & Salty Mix and Cajun Hot Mix were distributed nationwide into retail farm stores, and outdoor sporting good stores.
Sunflower Kernels, Sweet & Salty Mix and Cajun Hot Mix all packaged in clear bags with a variety of private labels and pack sizes listed below.
