Frozen Pancake, waffles and French toast mixes withdrawn due to the listeria bacteria

Pro Consumidor (The National Institute for the Protection of Consumer Rights) has called for stores to remove Aunt Jemina frozen pancakes, frozen waffles and frozen French toast slices for possible contamination with the listeria bacteria. The ban does not affect powdered mixes.

The warning was received from the United States’ Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after the presence of listeria was detected in the production plant of Pinnacle Foods.

Pro Consumidor has asked all providers to remove the packages from the shelves voluntarily and warned that their inspectors will be checking and that those who do not remove the packages will face the sanctions imposed by the government.

They also advised people to be aware of the symptoms of listeria contamination that include fever, chills, headache, stomach pains, vomiting. It is especially dangerous for small children, older people and those with compromised immune systems.
