WALNUT RECALLS

Belleville Farmer’s Market of Belleville, IL is recalling its packages of Shelled Walnuts because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recalled Shelled Walnuts were distributed in our Belleville retail stores. The product comes in an 8 ounce, clear plastic package marked with a Farmer’s Market label indicating pack dates from March 2014 through May 2014. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after FDA sampling detected Listeria monocytogenes in walnuts sampled from a supplier.

Consumers who have purchased 8 ounce packages of Shelled Walnuts are urged to return them to 1901 N. Belt West for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-618-235-9500.
