Soybean Products Recalled for Listeria Contamination

WASHINGTON - A recall was issued on Friday for certain soybean products that may be contaminated with listeria.

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services says Henry's Farm Inc., of Woodford, Virgina, is recalling all packages of soybean sprouts because of the possible contamination.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections to individuals with weakened immune systems. Healthier individuals can experience short term symptoms when exposed, such as high fevers, severe headaches, stiffness and nausea.
