A southeastern Pennsylvania mushroom farm is recalling packages of enoki mushrooms because they may be contaminated with a bacteria that can cause a potentially fatal illness. According to Phillips Mushroom Farm, located in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, the enoki mushrooms have been distributed in the United States and Canada through retail and food service channels. They were packaged under various brand names and sold between January 13 and 30 of this year. The company says the mushrooms were packed in clear plastic bags with blue, green or red graphics panels, plastic tills wrapped with film or one pound bags for food service.
Phillips officials say the mushrooms may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, which can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. It’s most dangerous to people with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and people with HIV. The recall covers 3.5-ounce, 4-ounce and 1-pound packages of the mushrooms.
