Packaged mushrooms are being recalled due to possible Listeria, according to the FDA.

The recall is for 14.11-ounce packages of "TWA AGRICULTURE MIXED MUSHROOMS" because they could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to health officials.

Listeria is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may 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.
