Alabama food safety inspectors have recalled several snack foods made by Parkers Farm Acquisition, LLC due to a possible bacteria contamination.

In a routine sampling, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture found some Parkers Farm products were contaminated with the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. The bacteria can listeriosis, "an uncommon but potentially serious disease marked by fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea," according to the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries.

Listeriosis can also cause deadly infections in infants, elderly people and those with weak immune systems, as well as lead to miscarriages and still births.
