T. Marzetti Company is recalling all “best by” dates of the biscuits sold in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.

The products should not be consumed. No one has reported any illnesses related to the recalled items.

“Although these products are not ready-to-eat items and have baking instructions which, if followed, will reduce consumer risk, there remains some risk that the mishandling of this product prior to or without adequate baking may cause illness,” the company said in a statement.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, pregnant women, older adults and those with compromised immune systems. Most symptoms include high fever, headache and nausea.

The following products are affected by the recall:
