Pinnacle Foods Inc. is voluntarily recalling all “Best By” dates of Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes, frozen waffles and frozen french toast over fears of listeria contamination.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website, the company issued the recall Friday as a precautionary measure for products distributed in the United States and Mexico. The recall does not include Aunt Jemima dry mixes and syrups, the announcement said.
The recall was issued after testing indicated the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the plant environment.
No injuries have been reported, but Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems, according to the FDA.
All ‘Best By’ dates of the following products are included in this recall:
