Dale and Thomas Popcorn Issues Recall of Certain Products Due to Possible Listeria Contamination - 10-5-12

Concord, NH - Dale and Thomas Popcorn is voluntarily recalling ready-to-eat
bags  of  select flavors of Popcorn, Indiana-brand popcorn products because
of  possible  contamination  by  Listeria  monocytogenes. The New Hampshire
Department  of  Health  and  Human  Services  (DHHS)  is  not  aware of any
illnesses associated with this recall.

All  recalled  products  were  distributed  to  various retailers, vendors,
distribution centers, and consumers through the Internet on or after August
8,  2012  with  Best  By  dates of February 4, 2013 through March 12, 2013.
Recalled  products  were  packaged  in red bags of various sizes. A list of
recalled  flavors  and corresponding bag sizes, Bag UPC (Code), and Best By
dates is available at http://www.popcornindiana.com/recall-list.

Products  involved  in  the  recall  should be discarded or returned to the
original point of purchase for a full refund or replacement.

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.

“Listeriosis  can  be  a  serious infection especially for pregnant women,”
said  Dr.  José  Montero,  Director  of  the DHHS Division of Public Health
Services.  “Foods  that  are contaminated may not look, smell, or taste any
different  so  there is no way to tell. The Food Protection Section here at
Public Health is tracking this situation.”

Symptoms  of  listeriosis include fever, muscle aches, and sometimes nausea
and  vomiting. If the infection spreads to the nervous system, symptoms can
include  headache,  stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, or convulsions.
Listeriosis  can  be  treated with antibiotics, so anyone who suspects they
may have the illness should contact their healthcare provider.

For  questions  about listeriosis, contact the NH Division of Public Health
Services  at  603-271-4496.  For  more information about listeriosis, visit
www.cdc.gov.    For    more   information   about   the   recall,   go   to
