Planters Peanuts Recall Issued Over Listeria Food Poisoning Risks

The recalled Planters peanuts were distributed by Publix in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina, and Dollar Tree distribution centers in South Carolina and Georgia.

Hormel Food Sales, LLC has issued a recall for two Planters Peanut products, due to risk of listeria monocytogenes contamination; a potentially deadly form of food poisoning.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the Planters Peanut recall on May 3, warning consumers of the potential listeria food poisoning risk, affecting two distributors in five states.

Listeria food poisoning can lead to severe infections, especially in children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals may experience short-term symptoms, including fever, headaches, stiffness, abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea from listeria monocytogenes infections, while pregnant women may suffer more severe consequences, including miscarriages and stillbirths.

To date, there have been no illnesses related to the recall and all stores that received the recalled product have been notified.
