Listeriosis Fear Prompts Albie's Pizza Calzone Recall

Posted on

Another food product has had to be recalled due to the threat of a possible bacterial contamination.

This time, the item in question is called Albie’s Pizza Calzone.  It was manufactured by Albie’s Foods, a company based out of the Michigan city of Gaylord.  The item is a ready to eat, fully cooked calzone.  Albie’s announced the recall once it was discovered that the product could pose a risk of infecting the consumer with Listeria monocytogenes.

The packages under threat of contamination are those that contain four dozen 4.5 ounce pieces of the calzone.  The items were created on April 10 and shipped to retailers in Michigan and Indiana. The best way to tell if the item is at risk is by looking at the package.  The packaging will have an establishment number of EST. 10100.  311 pounds of the calzone are affected by the recall.

Persons who come into contact with Listeria monocytogenes can contract listeriosis.  While persons with a healthy constitution are not typically in danger of getting this disease, infants, elderly persons, and others with weakened immune systems are particularly at risk.  These persons can face a serious and life-threatening infection, and other side effects can include headaches, nausea, and a high fever.

I’m sorry as a personal injury attorney in San Francisco to see another food item pose a risk to consumers.  I hope as a Bakersfield personal injury lawyer that the item can get completely recalled before someone gets sick or worse.
