Pero Family Farms recalls value-added butternut squash

Pero Family Farms Food Company, LLC BB #:123123 has initiated a voluntary product recall of its Butternut Squash Trays because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes, 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 fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue. This voluntary recall was the result of notification of possible Listeria contamination from Race West Company BB #:156704, a supplier of butternut squash to Pero Family Farms. Pero Family Farms Food Company, LLC has temporarily halted production of these items as all parties continue their investigation into this issue. Consumers who may have purchased this product are urged to return the product back to the place of purchase for a full refund or discard this product.
