Listeria monocytogenes is a bacteria that can cause flu-like symptoms, including high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Although healthy people rarely contract listeriosis, it can be very serious for those who are pregnant, those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection, or those who are undergoing chemotherapy.
Customers who purchased the affected products should discard any unused portions or bring their purchase receipt to Stop & Shop for a full refund.
Consumers may also call Stop & Shop Customer Service at 800-767-7772 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
