August 12, 2011: Layered Dips Recalled

 

According to the FDA, Fresh Food Concepts, Inc. of Buena Park, CA is voluntarily recalling layered dips that contain quacamole.   The pulp of the avocado that is used in the dip was tested by the FDA and found to contain the foodborne bacteria Listeria monocytogenes.

 

The layered dips were sold throughout the U.S. and Canada at supermarkets and club stores (i.e., Costco). It was sold under several brands, including Fresh Foods Concepts, Delicioso, Rojo’s and Signature Café.

 

Those products with a USE BY date before 9/23/2011 may contain Listeria.  After that date, a different supplier was used and the product is safe to consume.

 

Listeria is a bacterium that can cause a serious and potentially fatal infection in young children, the elderly, and the immunocompromised.  Infection with Listeria can lead to miscarriage and stillbirth in pregnant women.  See Listeria Symptoms to learn more about Listeria infection and its complications.
