The grocery chain said any potentially affected product has been removed from stores. The problem was discovered in a Massachusetts facility during a routine inspection.
Any of the recalled products should be thrown away or returned to any Trader Joe’s location for a full refund, the company said in a written statement.
According to the FDA, healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
Among pregnant women, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths.
This is the first product recall in the history of Fuji Food Products, the FDA also noted.
