Pre-packaged muffins make a super-convenient breakfast option. But if you’ve purchased muffins from Walmart, 7-Eleven, or Stop & Shop lately, check your packaging. Give and Go Prepared Foods, which distributes muffins at the retailers, has announced a voluntary recall on multiple products due to potential listeria contamination.
The list of products is lengthy and includes Uncle Wally’s brand, The Worthy Crumb and Freshness Guaranteed. Products sold include regular and mini muffin size and many have a lot code date of August 28 or 29. Check the recall announcement for the full list of affected muffins.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious or sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Fortunately, there have been no illnesses reported yet.
If you have one or more of these products at home, discard them and make note of the lot code on the packaging. If you decide to contact Give and Go’s customer support for more information, you can call 1-844-366-1171 and provide them with the lot code.
