The recall impacts two retailers in five states.Hormel Foods Corp.

Hormel Foods Sales is voluntarily recalling a limited number of two Planters nut products that were produced at one of its facilities in April.

The recall impacts two retailers in five states. These products are being recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. 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.

The products were shipped to Publix distribution warehouses in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and North Carolina and to Dollar Tree distribution warehouses in South Carolina and Georgia.

The recalled product is limited to 4 oz. packages of Planters Honey Roasted Peanuts and 8.75 oz. cans of PLANTERS® Deluxe Lightly Salted Mixed Nuts. The "Best if Used By Date" is on the bottom of the Deluxe Lightly Salted Mixed Nuts can and the UPC code is on the side of the can.
