Pero Family Farms has issued a recall for packaged butternut squash spirals and chunks that may be contaminated with Listeria. Consumers who have purchased these products should not eat them as Listeria can cause serious illness and death.
This recall includes butternut squash chunks and spirals sold in clear plastic containers at Publix and other grocery stores in Louisiana, Florida, Texas, New York, Maine, Georgia, Ohio, Virginia, Alabama, Virginia and Missouri. This is not the only ongoing Listeria recall for butternut squash products.
Pero Family Farms has temporarily halted production while authorities investigate.
Symptoms of a Listeria infection usually develop within two weeks of exposure but can take as long as 70 days. They include headache, stiff neck, muscle aches, confusion, loss of balance, and convulsions. Sometimes those Listeria symptoms are preceded by an upset stomach, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Among pregnant women, Listeria can cause miscarriage and stillbirth even if the mother only experience mild, flu-like symptoms.
