LANDOVER, Md.– Giant Food, upon notification from its supplier, Reser's Fine Foods, announced Wednesday that it has removed from sale several varieties of its store-packaged baked beans, found in the deli case, due to possible contamination by listeria monocytogenes.
The following products are included in this recall:
BBQ Baked Beans with Beef (sold in full service deli case), UPC 24359000000, with sell by dates of Oct. 15– Oct. 26, 2013
Baked Beans with Beef (sold in Deli To Go case), UPC 20738520000, with sell by dates of Oct. 15–Oct. 26, 2013
Fresh BBQ Beans (sold in full service deli case), UPC 24110000000, with sell by dates of Oct. 15 – Oct. 26, 2013
Giant Food said it has not received any reports of illnesses to date. Customers who have purchased the product should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to Giant Food for a full refund, officials said.
Listeria is a common organism found in nature. Officials said consumption of food contaminated with listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease.
Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis, officials said. However, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.
Officials said listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.
Consumers looking for additional information on the recall may call Reser's Fine Food at 1-888-257-7913 or Giant Customer Service at 1-888-469-4426 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for more information. Customers can also visit the Giant Food website at www.giantfood.com.
