    Fifteen Mary B's-brand biscuits were recalled on Jan. 9, 2018, due to possible Listeria contamination.

    Over a dozen Mary B's frozen bagged biscuit products were recalled voluntarily by Hom/Ade Foods, the company announced Tuesday, due to potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

    No illnesses connected to the product have been reported, according to a news release from Hom/Ade. The product's manufacturer, an outside co-packer, discovered the problem during a product sampling.

    The products were sold in stores after being distributed to the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin and West Virginia.
