The U.S. Food & Drug Administration announced a recall Friday of another popular brand of frozen biscuits.
Mary B’s frozen biscuits, made by Hom/Ade Foods, may be contaminated by listeria monocytogenes, which can cause serious infections that can be fatal to young children, frail or elderly people, people with weakened immune systems and can cause miscarriages in pregnant women. Healthy people can suffer high fevers, severe headaches, nausea and diarrhea.
Another recall, announced Jan. 2, involved frozen biscuits made by the T. Marzetti Company and sold under a number of product names.
The Mary B’s recall involves frozen bagged biscuits in a number of sizes and styles and a long list of UPC codes. The bags involved all have “Best If Used By” dates before Sept. 23, 2018, and all have the letter “M” after the date. The bags were sold at stores in North Carolina and South Carolina, as well as 21 others states. Following directions on the bag to bake the biscuits would reduce the risk, but there is also some risk in handling the product before baking or without fulling baking it.
