Whole Foods Market has posted the following recall on their website.

Casa Sanchez Foods of Hayward, CA, is recalling its 9-ounce containers of “Real Guacamole” because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recalled “Real Guacamole” was distributed to retail stores throughout the California Bay Area and surrounding counties.

This recalled product is packaged in 9-ounce, clear plastic containers that are labeled with the following information:

Front Label – Casa Sanchez Foods, Real Guacamole, UPC # 0 78732 00412 2 Bottom Label – White sticker showing the manufacturing lot code 279 and the product expiration date of 11/10/17.
