White Castle recalled frozen hamburgers due to the possible presence of Listeria.
What We Know:
- Listeria causes symptoms like headaches, loss of balance, and convulsions. This germ is caused after eating contaminated food. It can also cause stillbirths and miscarriages among pregnant women.
- A third-party laboratory found a presence of Listeria monocytogenes in a collection of a sample from one of the chain’s manufacturing facilities which prompted the voluntary recall.
- It’s not clear exactly how many burgers were recalled. According to Fox, the products recalled are the frozen 6-pack cheeseburgers, frozen 6-pack hamburgers, frozen 6-pack jalapeno cheeseburgers, 16-pack hamburgers, and 16-pack cheeseburgers with “best by” dates ranging from Aug. 4, 2020 to Aug. 17, 2020.
- White Castle vice president Jamie Richardson went on to say: “Our number one focus is the safety of our customers and our team members, and as a family owned business, we want to hold ourselves to the absolute highest standards of accountability in all aspects of our business – and especially food safety,”
Anyone with these items are urged not to eat them and to throw them away immediately.
