Giant says they haven’t received any reports of illnesses at this time.

Officials say that Listeria is a common organism found in nature, but that eating food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis, but according to Officials, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea, and fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.

Those who have purchased the Sabra products listed above, should throw away any unused portions, and bring their purchase receipt to Giant for a full refund.

Questions about the recall can be directed to Sabra Consumer Relations at 1-866-265-6761 or Giant Food Customer Service at 888-469-4426.
