A company that manufactures frozen biscuits sold under numerous brand names voluntarily recalled some of them Tuesday.
The recall affects biscuits made by the T. Marzetti Company, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
The biscuit dough may have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
The FDA says 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.
Affected biscuit dough was distributed throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled items.
