The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) is advising consumers that Delizza Belgian Custard Cream Mini Eclairs are being recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. This product was sold at Price Rite locations in Rhode Island.
Recalled products were packaged in containers of 30 eclairs. On the lid of the containers are the following lot number and expiration date: L1M1018 Best Before 09/09/19.
Listeria monocytogenes 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 fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The recall was a result of a routine sampling program. The company did not release any product that tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. These products are being recalled as a precautionary measure. No illnesses or adverse health effects resulting from these events have been reported to date.
Consumers who have purchased or received any of the products described below should immediately discontinue use of the product and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at firstname.lastname@example.org or 252-442-4016, Attention: Heather Aycock, Quality Assurance, Monday through Friday between 9am-5pm EST.
