Guan’s Mushroom Co. of Commerce, California, recalls all cases of its 200g/7.05-ounce packages of Enoki Mushroom on April 20, 2021, due to a possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

For wholesale, the product is being shipped in a white cardboard box with 25 pieces of 200g packs. Guan’s logo is printed in blue on the packaging with the same product code mentioned above.
As of the time of this recall’s publication, no illnesses have been linked to this problem. The product’s delivery has been put on hold. Enoki 200g packages bought by consumers can be returned for a full refund to the store where they were purchased.
Listeria monocytogenes-contaminated food does not appear or smell rotten, but it can still cause severe and often fatal infections.
Anyone who has consumed any recalled product and has experienced symptoms of Listeria infection should seek medical attention and inform their physicians about the potential exposure to Listeria.
Anyone who has consumed any of the recalled products should keep an eye out for symptoms in the coming weeks, as signs of listeriosis can take up to 70 days to appear after exposure to Listeria.
Listeria infection symptoms include:
- Constant fever
- Muscle aches
- Frequent headaches
- Neck stiffness
Listeria infections, which may mimic other diseases, require specific laboratory testing to be diagnosed.
Pregnant mothers, the elderly, young children, and people with compromised immune systems, such as cancer patients, are particularly vulnerable to severe illnesses, life-threatening infections, and other complications.
While infected pregnant women may only have mild flu-like symptoms, their conditions may result in preterm labor, infant infection, or stillbirth.
Initiating the Recall
The recalled items came from China and were distributed by produce dealers or wholesalers to retail stores around California, New York, and Pennsylvania.
The presence of Listeria monocytogenes in a 200g package of Enoki was discovered during routine testing by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, indicating the possibility of contamination.
Guan’s Mushroom Co. is currently not facing legal action due to the recall, but authorities keep a close eye on recalls because they can lead to class action litigation.
Two days after this recall, companies such as Los Angeles-based Golden Medal Mushroom Inc. recall all cases of their 200g/7.05-ounce Enoki mushroom packages.
