Check your freezer before making that weekend breakfast.   Pinnacle Foods Inc. is voluntarily recalling all “Best By” dates of Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes, frozen waffles and frozen French toast slices distributed nationally in the United States and one product into Mexico.

According to the recall notice posted on the FDA’s website, the products have the potential of being contaminated with listeria. 

No illnesses have been reported. The products are being recalled as a precautionary measure.

Pinnacle Foods initiated the recall after testing indicated the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the plant environment.

The FDA says Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy people may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, they say Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The affected products are being removed from store shelves. All ‘Best By’ dates of the following products are included in this recall:
