Warren based Lipari foods recalling sunflower seeds over potential listeria contamination
4:43 PM, Jun 12, 2013
WARREN, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan snack food maker is recalling sunflower seeds due to the potential of listeria contamination.
Lipari Foods in Warren, north of Detroit, says Wednesday the recall includes Raw Sunflower Seeds, Roasted Sunflower Seeds, and Snack Mixes.
They are among 52 items distributed from April 5 to June 11 to manufacturers and retailers in Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana.
The company says no illnesses have been reported.
A Michigan Department of Agriculture sampling project revealed that retail packaged raw sunflower seed products contained Listeria monocytogenes. Lipari says the company's investigation pointed to bulk seeds purchased from a supplier.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, which is an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Symptoms can include high fever and severe headache.
