Listeria can cause serious and possibly even fatal infections in young children, senior citizens, and those with weakened immune systems. While healthy individuals may exhibit short-term symptoms including high fever, headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, Listeria infections can have very serious consequences for pregnant women, causing miscarriages and stillbirths.

Anyone who purchased the affected product is being advised to discard it and contact Kellog's for a full refund. Consumers can call 1-800-962-1413, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. ET or visiting the company's website
