Marquis Worldwide Specialty Inc. Recalls Organic Enoki Mushroom 200g Because of Possible Health Risk
Marquis Worldwide Specialty Inc of City of Industry, CA is recalling All of the Organic Enoki Mushroom 200g, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a bacterium which can cause life-threatening illness or death. Consumers are warned not to use the product even if it does not look or smell spoiled.
Listeria monocytogenes 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. People experiencing these problems should seek immediate medical attention.
Organic Enoki mushroom 200g was distributed nationwide from California and it reached to consumers through retail stores and other produce wholesalers.
It is packed by each 200g individual plastic package and the package is clear on top and orange on the bottom part. It has ‘Conah Organic enoki mushroom’ written on front.
The mushroom is white and has almost no smell. As it is vegetable, it does not have a clear date of expiration.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
We are investigating to determine where contamination occurred. Consumers who have purchased 200g packages of ‘Conah Organic Enoki Mushroom’ are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-626-810-6426 Monday – Friday 7 am to 4 pm.
