(WTNH) — Some Stop & Shop brand granola bars are being recalled because they could be contaminated with Listeria.

The recall includes:

  • Six packs of 7.4-ounce Stop & Shop Chewy Trail Mix Bars – Fruit & Nut with UPC 8826701566 and best by dates of JUN 19 16, AUG 13 16, AUG 14 16, SEP 10 16, OCT 07 16, OCT 08 16
  • Five packs of 7-ounce Stop & Shop Protein Granola Bars (Peanut, Almond & Dark Chocolate) with UPC 8826714290 and best by dates of JUN 03 16, JUN 19 16, AUG 14 16, SEP 13 16, SEP 14 16, OCT 11 16

Stop & Shop says they don’t have any reports of people getting sick. They say eating food contaminated with Listeria can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. They say healthy people rarely contract listeriosis; however, listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea. Stop & Shop says listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weakened immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy.

People who have recalled granola bars should throw them away and bring their receipt to Stop & Shop for a refund.
