Frozen biscuits distributed to 23 states including North Carolina recalled due to listeria concerns

NETCO, a school food service cooperative serving 14 districts in Northeast Tennessee, was alerted by Gordon Food Service that Hom/Ade Foods issued a voluntary recall on Mary B's brand frozen biscuits.

Healthy people may suffer short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.

The recall affects frozen bagged biscuits with "Best If Used By" dates before September 23, 2018 and the letter "M" printed after the date. The products were distributed to 23 states including IL. Although these products are not ready-to-eat items and have baking instructions which, if followed, will reduce consumer risk, there remains some risk that the mishandling of this product prior to or without adequate baking may cause illness.

According to school system spokeswoman Rebecca Craddock, the biscuits were served for two weeks before the recall, and no children have reported being ill.

The FDA says those who have bought affected products should return them to the stores where they bought them for a refund.

The UPC code can be found on the back of the bag in the lower right corner. Hom/Ade Foods Inc. can be reached at 1-855-562-7773, Monday to Friday, from 8 A.M. and 5 P.M. CT. A list of them, and the produce codes affected, can be found here. No other code dates are affected.
