NETCO, a school food service cooperative serving 14 districts in Northeast Tennessee, was alerted by Gordon Food Service that Hom/Ade Foods had issued a voluntary recall for Mary B’s brand frozen biscuits due to a possible contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. Upon receiving notice of the recall, our nutrition department immediately pulled and discarded all products that were included in the recall.
The baking process is intended to kill the bacteria and no illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall. Prior to receiving the notice, the biscuits had been served at Science Hill for breakfast January 4-9, 2018. More information about the recall may be found at www.homadefoods.com. Additional information about Listeria monocytogenes may be found at www.cdc.gov/listeria.
