Meta Enoki Mushrooms Recalled Due to Listeria Contamination

United States: Lian Teng Produces Inc. announces the withdrawal of Meta brand Enoki Mushrooms from circulation due to potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

This recall follows the detection of Listeria monocytogenes in tests conducted by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). As per CFIA’s findings, the affected product was distributed in Ontario and potentially across other Canadian provinces and territories, according to the reports by Food Safety News. 

Details of the recalled product are as follows:

Brand: Meta

Item: Enoki Mushroom

Quantity: 200 grams

UPC: 6957937 482116

Code(s) : TH2408 | SN: 695102

As of the publication of this recall notice, there have been no documented instances of illness linked to the consumption of this product. Consumers are advised against consuming, utilizing, selling, serving, or distributing the recalled items.

Regarding Listeria, foods potentially tainted may not show signs of spoilage as other more harmless bacteria might, yet the foodstuffs may be a functional source of severe if not lethal illnesses. Consumers who have consumed any of the recalled products and have been experiencing some of the symptoms of listeriosis should consult their physicians and let the physicians know that they may have been in contact with Listeria, as stated by Food Safety News.

In addition, those who have ingested the contaminated products should self-watch over the coming weeks since the manifestation of listeriosis may only be noticed 70 days after early exposure.

Some of the signs of Listeria are vomiting, nausea, sustained fever, muscular pain, cramps, splitting headache, and stony neck rigidity. Since the clinical manifestations of listerial infections can be confused with those of other diseases, the definitive diagnosis requires specific serological/molecular assays.

Pregnant women, the geriatric population, children, and people with compromised immune systems, like those suffering from cancer and HIV/AIDS, are equally at risk of severe diseases, life-threatening infections, more complications, and mortality. To pregnant women who have developed Listeria infections, the symptoms may be merely like having the flu, but the condition could lead to preterm labor, newborn infection, or even death of the baby while still in the womb.
