RECALL: Crab Spread Pulled from Store Shelves for Listeria Scare

February 2, 2013

The Giant and Martin's supermarket chains have announced a recall for a possible listeria monocytogenes contamination.

The supermarkets have removed the Gold Coast Fresh Crab Spread from its shelves following a recall by Gold Coast Salads.

The product is:

Gold Coast Fresh Crab Spread, 8 oz., UPC 83355500325, expiration date of 1/31/2013

The supermarkets have received no reports of illnesses. A press release says customers who have purchased the spread should throw away any unused portions and bring a receipt to any Giant or Martin's location for a full refund.

Listeria is a potentially fatal disease that can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.

For more information, customers can call Gold Coast customer service at 1-239-513-0430 or Giant/Martin's customer service at 1-888-814-4268.
