Mary B’s frozen biscuits recalled due to possible listeria

A brand of frozen biscuits your family may regularly buy has announced a recall in 23 states due to possible listeria contamination.

Hom/Ade Foods, Inc announced Thursday that it’s voluntarily recalling Mary B’ brand biscuits after potential contamination was discovered in a product sampling taken by an outside co-packer. That packer manufactured the product, Hom/Ade Foods says. The company says it is working with the Food and Drug Administration and supplier to fix the problem.

The biscuits were sold in all our Local 6 states — Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, and Tennessee — as well as in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and West Virginia.

Healthy people infected from listeria may experience short-term symptoms like a high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausia, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. The illness can be more serious or even fatal in newborns and young children, elderly people, and people with weakened immunity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says pregnant women are 10 times more likely than other people to get Listeria infection, and the illness can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, and preterm labor.

Hom/Ade Foods says the Mary B’s products affected are frozen bagged biscuits with the UPC codes included in the chart below. All products with “Best If Used By” dates before Sept. 23, 2018, and with the letter “M” immediately after the date are included in the recall. You can find the code on the back of the bag in the lower right corner.

The company says no illnesses have been reported so far in association with the products, but the company urges people who bought the affected products to return them to the store where you bought them for a full refund.  You can see pictures of the affected products and of the product code you need to look for in the pdf at the bottom of this story. If you have more questions about the recall, you can call Hom/Ade Foods at 1-855-562-7773, Monday to Friday, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT.
