Product recalled due to Listeria risk
The Ministry of Health and Seniors has advised the public not to eat Aunt Jemima brand frozen pancakes, waffles or French toast due to a potential risk of Listeria contamination.
It is the second time this year that the Island has had a food recall over the potentially dangerous infection making its way into products.
Pancake syrup or dry mixes are not effected and no customers have reported illness, according to the ministry.
Products are being removed from shelves and consumers are advised to check their freezers for the products.
Full refunds can be claimed from the retailer.
“It can take up to 70 days for symptoms of Listeria infection to develop following exposure to the bacteria,” the ministry said.
“While most people experience short-term symptoms, Listeria infection can cause very serious complications for the unborn child of a pregnant woman as well as those with a weakened immune system.”
