TreeHouse Foods Issues Voluntary Product Recall Due to Possible Health Risk

OAK BROOK, Ill., May 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (NYSE: THS) today announced the voluntary recall of products that may be impacted by sunflower seeds contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes (L.mono).

L.mono is an organism, which 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.

Product was distributed nationwide through retail stores.  No illnesses have been reported to date. However, TreeHouse is initiating the voluntary recall in an abundance of caution to protect public health.

The products being recalled are listed below. Consumers can find UPC codes and Best By/Date Codes on each package.
