Before you pack down a few White Castle sliders: don’t because they may be contaminated with listeria.
White Castle voluntarily recalled their frozen line sold in grocery stores across the country.
Recalled products included the following: frozen six pack cheeseburgers, six pack hamburgers, and six pack jalapeño cheeseburgers, as well as frozen 16 pack hamburgers and cheeseburgers.
While it is not entirely clear where the recalled burgers were sold, you can check to see if your frozen White Castle burgers are a part of this recall by looking for the “best buy” dates.
The recalled items have best by dates ranging between Aug. 4, 2020 to Aug. 17, 2020, according to the FDA. In addition, the recalled burgers can be identified using the lot code as well which can be found on the side panel of the box.
Jamie Richardson, the company’s vice president, said the following in a statement:
“Our number one focus is the safety of our customers and our team members, and as a family owned business, we want to hold ourselves to the absolute highest standards of accountability in all aspects of our business — and especially food safety.”
