Listeria Contamination in Chopped Onions and Celery

Mon, 23 Jul 2012 11:54:15 EST

Gills Onions, LLC, located in California, has announced the recall of one day's production of diced and slivered onions, as well as a mix of diced onions and celery, due to Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The company issued their recall after being notified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that a random sample of diced yellow onions tested positive for Listeria.

As a result, the company has decided to recall all foods processed with the contaminated onions.    The products were shipped between July 2 and 4, 2012 under the name 'Gills Onions.'  The products were distributed to retailers in Canada, California, Montana, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and Washington.

Exposure to Listeria monocytogenes can cause a bacterial infection known as Listeriosis.  Listeriosis is typically not life-threatening for individuals with a strong immune system, and side effects may include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. 

However, for children, the elderly, and individuals with a weak immune system, Listeriosis can result in death if the infection is severe. Listeriosis can also lead to miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

'EMSL Analytical is one of the nation's leading food testing laboratories,' states EMSL's National Food Microbiology Supervisor, Joy Dell'Aringa, M.S., R.M. (N.R.M.), C.F.S.P. 'Companies on the west coast have been using EMSL Analytical in San Leandro and South Pasadena, CA for Listeria testing, in addition to other foodborne pathogens, for many years'
