“Popcorn Indiana” Popcorn Recall Issued Due To Listeria Contamination
Various flavors of “Popcorn Indiana” ready-to-eat bags of popcorn and kettle corn are being recalled from store shelves due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections.
The Dale and Thomas “Popcorn, Indiana” recall was announced September 28, after testing indicated the presence of Listeria in some ready-to-eat bags of the popcorn. However, no cases food poisoning have been reported in connection with the recall.
The recalled products are marketed under under the “Popcorn, Indiana” name and were distributed to various retailers, vendors, distribution centers, and consumers through the Internet. Recalled products were sold on or after August 8, 2012 with a “best buy” date of March 12, 2013.

All of the affected popcorn was sold in red bags, with a best buy date that can be located on the front of the packaging in the top right corner, near the UPC code and the bottom left corner of the bag near the nutritional information.
Listeria infections pose a serious risk to young children and the elderly due to a weakened immune system. For pregnant women, listeriosis can pose a serious risk of miscarriages and still births.
In many cases, individuals do not experience symptoms immediately, which may involve fever, muscle aches, nausea or diarrhea, In more severe cases, listeria poisoning may lead to meningitis, mental changes, brain abscesses, or death.
While listeria illness is one of the rarer forms of food poisoning, it frequently results in hospitalization and about a quarter of those who contract the illness die from the infection.
Consumers with recalled products should contact Dale and Thomas’ dedicated recall hotline (866) 940-7936 or e-mail the company at email@example.com.
