Dale and Thomas, Englewood, N.J., which manufacturers and markets gourmet popcorn under the Dale and Thomas and Popcorn, Indiana brands, has voluntarily recalled several flavors due to a possible Listeria contamination. The contamination was identified following testing by the company.
According to a recent CSB News report, customers are being asked to return their Popcorn, Indiana products for a refund or to throw the popcorn away. The products that were possibly infected were packaged in red bags and had sell-by dates between Feb. 4, 2013 and March 12, 2013.
“Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of those who buy our popcorn and the employees who make up our company,” Popcorn, Indiana wrote on its website regarding the removal of the popcorn product. “We hold ourselves to standards that are among the highest in the industry, and as such, we regularly conduct testing beyond FDA requirements.”
The popcorn was sold in a range of locations, including retailers, distributor centers and online.
