The The U.S. Department of Agriculture began investigating after being notified on June 9 of two people who were sick with listeriosis.
That investigation identified three listeriosis illnesses, including one death, between April 6 and June 5, according to the USDA.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service is now working with federal and state public health partners to determine how many other illnesses there may be that are associated with the products.
Symptoms of listeria can include, but are not limited to:
- Muscle aches
- Stiff neck
- Loss of balance
- Other gastrointestinal symptoms
“H-E-B customers who purchased any of the products related to this recall can return them to the store for a full refund,” an H-E-B news release stated.
