ST. GEORGE — We really hate to interrupt your breakfast. But a major food manufacturer has issued a recall for popular frozen breakfast items for possible Listeria contamination.

Working in conjunction with the United States Food and Drug Administration, Pinnacle Foods Inc. is voluntarily recalling all “Best By” dates of Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes, frozen waffles & frozen French toast slices distributed nationally in the United States and one product distributed in Mexico because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Affected products and their associated UPC codes are listed below. No illnesses have been reported.

The products are being recalled as a precautionary measure. Pinnacle Foods initiated the recall after testing indicated the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the plant environment.

All affected distributors and retail and food service customers are being notified and the affected products are being removed from store shelves.

Listeria monocytogenes

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
