Updated information in bold red

Huntington, NY (SafetyAlerts) - Hannelore Gourmet Foods Ltd. is recalling approximately  17,600 lbs pounds of mousse truffee that may be contaminated with Listeria monocylogenes.

The contamination was reported to the Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene which was investigating several reports of illnesses.  At this point however, there have been no definitive connection between those illnesses and the recalled product.

The recall mousse truffee is D'ARTAGNAN PORK FREE MOUSSE TRUFEE and was sold in 8 ounce packages nationwide, Canada, catalog sales, and possibly on the internet.

Consumers can identify the recalled packages by the number P9678 inside the USDA seal of inspection and the date code through Feb 28 00 stamped on the back.

Listeria can cause high fever, severe headaches, neck stiffness, nausea and possibly fatal infections in individuals with weakened immune systems such as the elderly.  It may also cause still births and miscarriages in pregnant women.

Consumers with questions regarding the recalled product should contact Arian Daguin, Co-owner, D'Artagnan Inc. at 1-800-327-8246, ext 134
