Nearly 6,000 pounds of frozen cooked lobster meat is being recalled by a Maine company due to potential Listeria contamination.
Greenhead Lobster Products of Bucksport, Maine, said it issued the recall after identifying the potential for contamination during a routine sampling.
The potentially contaminated lobster meat was sent to Maine and New Hampshire companies for distribution nationwide.
No illnesses have been reported to date, the company said, but Listeria infection can cause symptoms including high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Anyone who purchased products included in the recall is urged not to consume them and to return them to the place where they bought them for a full refund.
Anyone with further questions is urged to call Greenhead Lobster Products' customer service desk at (207) 367-0950 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET.
