Soy Sprouts Recall Update

FDA has issued a notice advising that Chang Farms has recalled its soy sprouts due to the presence of Listeria monocytogenes. The company, based in Whately, Massachusetts, announced the recall last week, but didn't specify the species of Listeria that had been found in the sprouts.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause a variety of symptoms, ranging from mild flu-like symptoms or gastroenteritis to life-threatening illness. Pregnant women who become infected with this bacterium are at risk of miscarriage.

If you have purchased the recalled sprouts, either discard them or return them to the store for a refund.
