Yorgo's Foods issue recall due to potential Listeria contamination

- Potential listeria contamination has prompted an immediate recall.

Yorgo’s Foods Inc. is recalling all Greek-style food the company produces as a precaution. The products were distributed to retail stores across the country. If the product is in your home, the company advises you to discard or return it to the grocery store where you purchased. No illnesses have been reported.

The potential health risk was discovered after routine FDA environmental sampling found the listeria organism in the processing environment, and in one sample of “Original Tahini Sauce.”

Manufacturing of all the products have been suspended during the investigating and as the FDA and company attempt to eliminate it. 

Listeriosis is a serious infection caused by the germ Listeria monocytogenes, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. People can become ill after eating contaminated food. It primarily affects pregnant women, newborns, older adults and people with weak immune systems.

Listeriosis is usually a mild illness for pregnant women, but can cause severe disease in the fetus or newborn baby.
