white castleU.S. (12/9/19) — White Castle has initiated a voluntary recall of a limited number of frozen six-pack cheeseburgers, frozen six-pack hamburgers, frozen eight-pack jalapeno cheeseburgers, and 16-pack hamburgers, 16-pack cheeseburgers for the possible presence of Listeria monocytogenes, the FDA reported today.

FDA indicates Listeria monocytogenesis 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 voluntary recall will impact product on shelves at select retailers with best by dates ranging from 04 Aug 2020 to 17 Aug 2020. Any product with these dates on shelves is presently being removed. Any product with a best by date before or after these best by dates is not included in the voluntary recall.

To date, public health officials have not reported any illness associated with these products.

“Our number one focus is the safety of our customers and our team members, and as a family owned business, we want to hold ourselves to the absolute highest standards of accountability in all aspects of our business, and especially food safety,” White Castle vice president Jamie Richardson said in a statement.
