The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a voluntary recall of packaged muffins sold at retailers including Walmart, 7-Eleven, and Stop & Shop. On July 19, muffin manufacturer Give & Go issued a voluntary recall for 26 varieties including Great Value, 7-Eleven Selects, Stop & Shop, Uncle Wally's, Freshness Guaranteed, Marketside, and The Worthy Crumb for possible contamination with the organism Listeria monocytogenes. The affected flavors across Give & Go's brands include blueberry, banana nut, chocolate chip, and Oreo.

According to Give & Go's alert, there have been no reports of illness. Healthy individuals may only suffer short-term symptoms including diarrhea, high fever, nausea, abdominal pain, and stiffness, but listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, the elderly, and immunocompromised people, Give & Go said. Listeria can also cause miscarriage and stillbirths among pregnant people.

If you've purchased the muffins, the FDA advises disposing of them out of an "abundance of caution." For a complete list of recalled Give & Go muffins, read the FDA's announcement.
