No illnesses have been reported, but consumers should not use the recalled products. While Listeria monocytogenes usually produces only a mild gastrointestinal or flu-like illness in adults, it can cause life-threatening illnesses in the elderly, young children, pregnant women and immuno-compromised individuals. Pregnant women infected with Listeria monocytogenes may miscarry or transmit the infection to their fetus in the womb.
Consumers should return the recalled yogurt to the place of purchase for a full refund, and can contact Happy Valley Dairies at 03226942 for more information.
