Grocery giant H-E-B issued a volunteer recall notice Friday for two of their single-serving soups made with vegetables due to possible listeria monocytogenes contamination.
On Thursday, California-based Mann Packing recalled specific vegetable products that were supplied to H-E-B for their Beef and Chicken Asian Noodle Cups.
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,” H-E-B stated in a release. Short term symptoms of possible infection include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The company also stated that there were no reports of illness caused by the soups, and that all of the potentially affected products were removed from stores.
H-E-B is offering a full refund to customers that purchased the products. Customers with questions or concerns may call 1-855-432-4438 for more information.
