Coon Rapids-company Parkers Farm Acquisition LLC. announced a voluntary recall of all products because they may contain Listeria monocytogenes.

The recall is being conducted as a precaution in response to testing conducted by the State of Minnesota, according to an announcement on the company’s website.

So far, no illnesses have been reported.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infection in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
