HANOVER, Pa.--()--Amish Farms:

Announcement

As part of the ongoing recall of sunflower kernel products supplied by SunOpta Inc. that have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, Hickory Harvest Foods is voluntarily expanding the recall of Amish Farms 5.5 oz. Sunflower Kernels to include a second lot. The product being recalled may contain sunflower kernels recalled by SunOpta, Inc. Hickory Harvest Foods produced the product being recalled for Amish Farms, and SunOpta, Inc. supplied the kernels. Amish Farms is providing this information to its customers in an effort to alert consumers who may have purchased this single lot of the Amish Farms Sunflower Kernels.

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.
