Following the announcement of a recall of a gold needle mushroom product earlier this month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a new food safety warning, saying another popular gold mushroom product has also been recalled,media reported. Like the previous recall, the recalled golden mushrooms, also from South Korea, are believed to be responsible for the Listeria outbreak.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says the listeria outbreak has sickened 36 people and killed four. This foodborne disease is particularly dangerous for pregnant women, the elderly and anyone whose health has been impaired.
It is understood that the recalled mushrooms came from a company called Guan’s Mushroom Co. of California. So far, the company has recalled its 7.05oz package driven by gold-needle mushrooms, which originate in South Korea. The products are reported to be sold in retail stores in Pennsylvania, California and New York.
The recalled products are packaged with Enoki Mushrooms in English, Korean and French. Consumers can identify it by using UPC code 859267007013 and the packing code 14-1 in the lower right corner of the bottom right of the package. Anyone who buys the mushrooms can ask for a refund or throw them away directly.
