BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A recall has been issued for nearly 373,000 pounds of hot dogs and corn dogs because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced.

Bar-S Foods notified the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) office in Dallas July 19 of the company’s intention to issue a recall. The company has not received test results confirming any contamination, but decided to pull the products from the shelves as a precautionary measure “due to recurring Listeria species issues at the firm.”

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis infection. Symptoms include fever, headache, convulsions, diarrhea and more. Particularly prone to infection are elderly people, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems. For a full list of symptoms, click here.
