According to the FDA, the problem was discovered in Fuji Food Products, Inc.’s Brockton, Massachusetts facility by a routine inspection conducted by the FDA.

The company ceased production and distribution of their products in this facility as FDA and the company continued to investigate what caused the problem.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which 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 can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

FDA officials said this was the company’s first recall.

The company’s CEO said in a statement, “We will restart operation only after we have eliminated the cause and the FDA certifies that our facility is once again free of possible contamination.”
