Yorgo’s Foods Inc Is Recalling All Flavored and Unflavored Food Products (Hommus; Tahini Sauces; Yogurt Dip, Salads, Tzatziki, Grape Leaves; Taboule) Due to Possible Health Risk - 11/17/17
Yorgo’s Foods Inc. of Manchester NH, a family-owned company, started in 1993, is recalling all Greek-style food products it manufactures, out of an abundance of caution, as they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in pregnant women, young children, frail or elderly people, those with weakened immune systems and in unborn fetuses. 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 products were distributed to retail stores nationwide. A complete list of the recalled Yorgo’s Foods products and product photos can be found at the end of this Recall Notice. Most of the recalled products were distributed in 8, 12, 16 and 32 ounce plastic cups or 2 and 5 pound plastic bags.
These products should be discarded or returned to the grocery store where purchased for credit. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with these products.
This issue was identified after routine FDA environmental sampling identified Listeria monocytogenes in the processing environment and in one sample of “Original Tahini Sauce”. Manufacturing of all foods has been voluntarily suspended while the FDA and company continue to investigate the source of the problem and eliminate it. During this time, we appreciate the patience of our loyal customers and consumers while we enhance our food safety program in cooperation with the FDA to again deliver tasty, wholesome and safe Greek-style foods.
Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-603-624-5830, M-F 9am- 4pm or go to the company website at https://www.yorgofoods.com/.
