Merb's caramel apples recalled for possible listeria

If you've been keeping up to date with the latest caramel apple recall around the nation, it's time to add yet another manufacturer to the list, Merb's Candies. Furthermore, Merb's, which is based in St. Louis, MO, have recalled their bionic and double dipped apples due to possible listeria contamination. The apples have been sold primarily in the St. Louis area as well as shipped all over the nation. Likewise, the product comes in individually wrapped pieces and was available from September 8 through November 25, 2014 with no identifying lot codes.

Thus far, Merb's has been cooperating with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to try and track the possibility of listeria poisoning. Merb's caramel apples ceased production in November 23, 2014, and are no longer available for purchase. The company warns that anyone that has the apples from the recalled dates to dispose of the product properly. Listeria can cause potentially serious and fatal infections to the very young, elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. Symptoms of listeria infection can include nausea, diarrhea, severe headache, stiffness, abdominal pain and cramping, and high fever.
