Recalled spreads, dips could cause miscarriage

Dips and spreads sold in Colorado are possibly contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weakened immune systems. Most people suffer only short-term symptoms but Listeria also causes miscarriages and stillbirths.

The suspect products were sold under the Parker Farms or Parkers labels at Safeway and Whole Foods stores in Colorado. The company is recalling all products, regardless of codes, to make sure that all potentially contaminated food is recovered.
