What You Should Do
If you have any of the recalled products in your possession, do not eat them. Listeriosis does not usually pose a serious threat to healthy adults with normal immune systems, but it can be very dangerous or fatal to the elderly, children, and people with weakened immune systems. Additionally, pregnant women are at an elevated risk for becoming infected if they eat food contaminated with listeria and it can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, or newborn death.
You can return the recalled product to the place from which you purchased it for a full refund.
If you believe that you have become infected with listeriosis from eating recalled Parkers Farm Products or any other product that was discovered to be contaminated, please contact the experienced defective products attorneys at Schlichter, Bogard & Denton, serving clients nationwide.
