January 28, 2013: Sprouters Northwest Recall For Multiple Varieties Of Sprouts Amid Health Concerns

Sprouters Northwest Recall News – On January 28, 2013, Sprouters Northwest of Kent, WA, recalled 1953 pounds of various sprouts because the products may be contaminated with the foodborne pathogen, Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection (listeriosis) can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
