Popular Snack Food Recalled For Listeria Concerns

If your family is one that loves to snack on edamame beans, you need to check your cupboards immediately.

Advanced Fresh Concepts (AFC) has issued a voluntary recall for their edamame snacks after random quality testing revealed a potential listeria contamination.

The symptoms of the disease include muscle aches, fever, diarrhea, or other gastrointestinal issues.

In pregnant women, contracting listeria could cause miscarriage stillbirth, premature labor, or death in newborns.
