Granola Recall

Also recalled this week were certain packages of Trader Joe’s Grainless Granola, the state Department of Health announced.

The recall was issued because the products may be contaminated with Listeria.

The recalled products have “best by” dates of 032818; 032918; 040618; or 041018.

Listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, elderly people, and those with compromised immune systems, though healthy individuals can also experience symptoms such as high fever, severe headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

No illnesses have been reported to date, according to health officials.

Consumers should return the products to Trader Joe’s for a refund.
