According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Listeria monocytogenes is an bacteria that can cause serious infections.

These can especially affect vulnerable people such as young children, older adults and those with weakened immune systems.

The recalled enchiladas, made with Queso Fresco that was recalled by Rico-Lopez, were distributed to supermarkets in northern Utah, including Smith’s, Harmons, Macey’s The Store and Fresh Markets.

They were packaged in a Deep Meal tray – Plant Fiber – Film 800, according to the FDA.
