Product Recall: Delizza

St. Louis, March 26, 2018 - In response to a voluntary product recall by Poppies International, Inc. of Battleboro, NC, Dierbergs Markets has removed the following product from its shelves because of the possibility of contamination with Listeria monocytogenes:

Delizza Belgian Custard Cream Mini Eclairs, 30 ct.
UPC: 6-76670-00106
Lot: L1M1018
Best Before: 09/09/19

The recall was a result of a routine sampling program by the company which revealed that finished product ran on the same line contained the bacteria. The company did not release any product that tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes and as a precautionary measure is recalling all product ran on the line during that production week. No illnesses or adverse health effects resulting from these events have been reported to date.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that 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.

More information on this recall is available from the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

Customers who have purchased any of the recalled products are urged not to consume them and return them to Dierbergs for a full refund. Consumers with further questions may contact company at info@delizza.us or 252-442-4016, Attention: Heather Aycock, Quality Assurance, Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. EST.
