The Flagship-written, FDA-posted recall notice says this covers lot No. 2077890089, which went to distributors in Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Wisconsin. Which retailers bought from those distributors wasn’t detailed.

Listeria kills about 260 of the 1,600 Americans infected each year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. In addition to senior citizens and children under 5 being the most vulnerable to salmonella’s worse effects, add pregnant women. They can suffer stillbirths and miscarriage. Listeria symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, high fever, severe headaches, stomachaches, stiffness, confusion and poor balance.
