The products are being recalled due to listeria concerns.

According to the recall notice, the products are being pulled from the market because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Among otherwise healthy individuals, listeria typically causes flu-like symptoms that resolve quickly without treatment, including abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, nausea, severe headaches, and stiffness.

However, listeria infections can sometimes be fatal among young children, elderly individuals, and the immunocompromised. Listeria infections have also been linked to both miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant individuals.

If you purchased the affected muffins, do not eat them and throw them away.

Due to the serious nature of the potential contamination, Give and Go advises that "consumers who have these products should immediately dispose of the products and not eat them."

For more information about the recall, you can contact Give and Go 24 hours a day at 844-366-1171; customer relations professionals will be available to respond to calls on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST.
