The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Yorgo’s Foods Inc. of Manchester New Hampshire is recalling all Greek-style food products it manufactures. These Yorgo products are being recalled out of an abundance of caution, as they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with these products.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in pregnant women, young children, frail or elderly people, those with weakened immune systems and in unborn fetuses. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

These recalled products were distributed to retail stores nationwide. A complete list of the recalled Yorgo’s Foods products is listed below. Most of the recalled products were distributed in 8, 12, 16 and 32 ounce plastic cups or 2 and 5 pound plastic bags.

The recalled products should be discarded or returned to the store where they were purchased for credit.

Yorgo’s Foods has voluntarily suspended the manufacturing of all foods while the FDA and company continue to investigate the source of the problem and eliminate it. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-603-624-5830, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. or go to the company website at https://www.yorgofoods.com/.
