Recall: Frozen entree products may be tainted
Golden Gourmet, of Americus, Ga., is recalling approximately 5,248 pounds of frozen entree products that may be tainted with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Thursday.

The frozen waffles with turkey sausage patty items were produced and packaged on December 21, 28, 29, and 30, 2016. The following products are subject to recall:

 • 5,248 pounds of 7.1 ounce trays with clear film in cardboard box packages containing “Waffles, Turkey Sausage Patty with Sliced Apple Seasoned w/Brown Sugar and Cinnamon” on the label, lot codes of 2016355, 2016363, 2016364 and 2016362, and Use By dates of 06/21/18, 06/28/18, 06/29/18 and 06/30/18.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number P-51269 inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to institutions in South Carolina, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio and Tennessee.                                 

The problem was discovered on May 19, when Golden Gourmet received a letter of notification from its supplier, US Foods, about products that had been recalled. Golden Gourmet notified FSIS on May 23 about the inclusion of recalled US Foods product in Golden Gourmet products.  There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.

Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.

FSIS and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers' freezers.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact Sherry Cannon, office manager, at (229) 389-2392.
