    “Although these products are not ready-to-eat items and have baking instructions which, if followed, will reduce consumer risk, there remains some risk that the mishandling of this product prior to or without adequate baking may cause illness,” the company said in a statement.

    Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, pregnant women, older adults and those with compromised immune systems. Most symptoms include high fever, headache and nausea.

    The following products are affected by the recall:
