Recall of Parkers Farm products

A potential listeria contamination has led to a recall of products from Parkers Farm. The Minnesota-based company produces salsa, peanut butter, bagel spreads and other goods which are sold nationwide. Whole Foods, Target, Sam's Club, Costco and Safeway are among the retailers which carry Parkers Farm products.

Listeria, a bacteria that can cause miscarriages in pregnant women along with nausea and severe headache, was found during product sampling by the states of Minnesota and Wisconsin. No illnesses have been reported thus far from consuming Parkers Farm products.
