July 21, 2021 -- The maker of several muffin and mini-muffin brands sold at Walmart, 7-Eleven, and elsewhere has recalled several of its products over possible listeria contamination.

Give and Go Prepared Foods announced the voluntary nationwide recall. In a recall statement from the FDA, the company said the muffins could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, “an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.”

Healthy people may have only short-term symptoms. But a listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. If you have these products, you are encouraged to throw them away.

There have been no reports of anyone getting sick from the muffins.

Walmart brands affected by the recall include Freshness Guaranteed, Great Value, and Marketside. Other brands affected are 7-Eleven Selects, Stop & Shop brand mini muffins, Uncle Wally's, and The Worthy Crumb. Visit the FDA site to see a full list of affected products.
