WASHINGTON -- Bar-S Foods, an Oklahoma-based company, has recalled hundreds of thousands of pounds of hot dogs and other products Tuesday due to possible listeria contamination, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The company recalled nearly 380,000 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken and pork hot dog and corn dog products were produced on July 10-13 and sold nationwide, according to the USDA.
If contaminated, consumption of these products can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, pregnant women and newborns.
Common symptoms of listeriosis include fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms, according to the USDA.
