Southern breakfast fans, beware: There's a new buttermilk biscuit dough recall affecting 12 states as we speak. The T. Marzetti Company has voluntarily recalled frozen biscuit dough packed under a variety of brands due to potential listeria contamination, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
As a precautionary measure, the company is recalling several products that were distributed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. All "Best By" dates are included in this recall. Although no illnesses have been reported so far in connection with these recalled items, the FDA urges customers not to consume the products and instead either destroy them or return them to the point of purchase for a full refund.
As we all know, the possibility of listeria in our food is nothing to mess around with, because it can cause serious and sometimes even fatal infections in young children, elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. It can even cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. So be sure to check your fridge for any of the below products, listed by the UPC number, brand name and description, and count per package.
