Onions now can do more than just make you cry. Recently, Gill Onions announced a voluntary recall due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.
What is Listeria monocytogenes? It is an organism that can do a little or a lot of damage.
Although the company is located in California, this recall is nation-wide, specifically to retailers in Canada and multiple states. However, customers need to more than just wary of the onions but of products containing the onions in it as well. A list of these products and the states affected by the recall can be found on the Food and Drug Administration web site.
Fortunately, no one yet has reported becoming ill.
