Young children and elderly people are at a higher risk of becoming severely sick if they contract listeria, as are immunocompromised and pregnant people. Symptoms typically include fever and flu-like reactions, such as muscle aches and fatigue, according to the CDC.

The symptoms typically begin within two weeks of eating contaminated food but can start the same day or up to 70 days later, according to the CDC.

No illnesses have been reported related to the Planters recall. Consumers who have purchased the products are urged to discard the product or return it to the store it was purchased from for a full refund. Anyone with further questions can contact Hormel Food Sales, LLC.
