Nationwide recall of edamame over listeria fears

You may want to check your refrigerator because something you just bought at the grocery store could be crawling with listeria.

It's the Advanced Fresh Concepts brand of Edamame. The company found traces of contamination after random testing.

The nationwide recall affects all edamame sold between January 3rd and St. Patrick's Day in over 30 states.

The UPC code is: UPC code 0-23012-00261-9.

If the numbers match up, you can return the edamame where you bought it for a full refund.

Young children, elderly and pregnant women should be careful. For those people, Listeria infections can be deadly.

If you're healthy, you shouldn't panic. Listeria will only give you a fever, headache, or cause you to spend a while in the bathroom.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, no illnesses have been reported so far.

All of the recalled products, which include Mars, Snickers and Milky Way bars, were manufactured at a Dutch factory in Veghel, according to a Mars spokeswoman. The recall follows a January 8th complaint from a consumer in Germany, who said she found red plastic in a Snickers bar and sent it back to the company.
