White Castle has voluntarily recalled all of its frozen sliders due to a possible listeria monocytogenes contamination. This includes frozen six and 16 pack cheeseburgers, frozen six and 16 pack hamburgers, and frozen six-pack jalapeño cheeseburgers.
As an announcement on the FDA website explains, “The voluntary recall will impact product on shelves at select retailers with best by dates ranging from 04 Aug 2020 to 17 Aug 2020. Any product with these dates on shelves is presently being removed. Any product with a best by date before or after these best by dates is not included in the voluntary recall.” They add, “To date, public health officials have not reported any illness associated with these products.”
Jamie Richardson, White Castle’s Vice President, is assuring customers, saying, “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.”
White Castle has taken numerous precautions following their discovery, including elevating their food safety testing guidelines and conducting intense sanitation and cleaning within their facilities.
