“Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems,” FDA said.
The recalled kimchi was sold in 5GAL plastic tubs, and 128 oz, 64 oz, 32 oz, & 16 oz glass jars under the 5000 Years Foods brand name with code information “09052021” through “09252021” printed on the top of the lid.
Affected products were distributed in Illinois, where they were subsequently distributed and reached customers through distributors to retail stores potentially nationwide.
This recall was initiated after FDA sampling found Listeria monocytogenes in the 5000 Years Foods production facility in Chicago.
Consumers who purchased any recalled kimchi should either discard it or return it for a refund.
If you are concerned about a potential food poisoning illness from recalled kimchi, you should dial 9-1-1 immediately.
