Walmart Recalls 44 Frozen Foods From Their Stores, Here’s The List…

Many times people aren’t even aware that food recalls occur at grocery stores and supermarkets. This leaves people unaware that the food they’re consuming may be contaminated with dangerous bacteria. Learning about this on your way to the emergency room is not what we want.

Last year, an outbreak of listeria hit multiple states due to contaminated frozen produce. After some people got sick, it was later discovered that multiple companies were selling products that were either tainted or possibly tainted. Therefore, a recall was issued.

What’s particularly dangerous about Listeria is that symptoms of Listeriosis can take up to 70 days to appear. People will write off the symptoms as being related to something else. But pregnant women and the elderly have the highest risk of contracting it.

Symptoms may be flu-like, and include fever, muscle ache, diarrhea, fatigue, and vomiting. Listeriosis is extremely threatening during pregnancy and can lead to miscarriage, stillbirth, or premature delivery. Infections can be fatal in children, the elderly, or those with weak immune systems.

Though the recall for these products was issued last year, it’s possible that people still have these items in their freezers because of their 2017 expiration dates. The FDA states that the products can either be returned to the store for a refund or destroyed.

Multiple retailers may have been carrying them including Wal-Mart, Target, and Sprouts Farmers Market. Check below to see if you may have purchased any from Wal-Mart or another seller:
