- Product Description:
Marquis Worldwide Specialty Inc from City of Industry, CA is recalling all Enoki 200g organic mushrooms as they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that can cause fatal illness or death. Consumers are cautioned not to use the product even if it does not look or smell bad.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy people only experience short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women. People facing these problems should seek immediate medical attention.
Enoki Organic Mushroom 200g has been distributed nationwide from California and has reached consumers through retail stores and other product wholesalers.
It is packaged in each individual 200g plastic wrap and the packaging is transparent on the top and orange on the bottom. It has ‘Conah Organic Enoki mushroom’ written on the front.
The mushroom is white and almost odorless. Since it’s vegetable, it doesn’t have a clear expiration date.
No illness has been reported to date related to this problem.
We are investigating to determine where the contamination has occurred. Consumers who have purchased 200g packs of “Conah Organic Enoki Mushroom” are asked to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions can contact the company at 1-626-810-6426 Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
