A California company has recalled their brand of edamame due to possible Listeria contamination.
CBS Boston reports, AFC or, Advanced Fresh Concepts Franchise Corp. has issued a recall of their edamame labeled as “Edamame – Soybeans in Pods,“ due to findings of Listeria contamination during random testing. The recall is for packages that have the “sell by” dates as being between January 3 and March 17 of 2017.
According to the FDA, Listeria infections may cause such symptoms as high fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Listeria can also cause even more serious problems, including miscarriages, stillbirth, and fetal infection in pregnant women.
For now there haven’t been any illnesses reported in connection with the recalled edamame, and shouldn’t find it for sale anymore in any stores.
The edamame was sold in over 32 other states.
If you have bought the recalled edamame you should of course not eat it and should take it back to the store where it was purchased to get a full refund.
