Hostess Recalls Buns Over Salmonella & Listeria Fears

If you’re thinking of having hamburgers and hot dogs for your next cookout, make sure that you don’t use Hostess buns, as they may contain Listeria and Salmonella.

The Food & Drug Administration posted an alert on their website after Hostess Brands issued a voluntary recall on several of their hot dogs and hamburger buns over contamination fears.

Hostess was made aware of the possible spread after their co-manufacturer, Best Harvest Bakeries, was informed of a possible spread of the deadly bacteria through their environmental monitoring program. The company says that the only affected products are the Hostess Soft White Hamburger Buns and the Soft White Hot Dog Buns. Consumers can find the specific list of the item codes, batch numbers, and best by dates on the FDA website.

Listeria and Salmonella can lead to dangerous infections in children, older adults, or anyone with a compromised immune system. Symptoms include stomach pain, fever, headaches, vomiting, and diarrhea. Listeria has been documented to cause miscarriages and stillbirths as well. In the most severe cases, both of these bacterias can lead to death.

As of now, no illnesses due to the outbreak have been reported.
