Trader Joe's has removed all of the affected products from store shelves.

"If you have purchased any of these products with the specified date codes, please do not eat it. Instead, we urge you to discard the product or return it to any Trader Joe’s for a full refund," the company's statement read.

The Trader Joe's recall is related to Fuji Foods' recall issued last week. Fuji Foods is a food manufacturer that provides ready-to-eat sushi, salads, and spring rolls to select retailers and distributors, including Trader Joe's.

Listeria monocytogenes is a species of pathogenic bacteria that causes listeriosis — a serious infection that can be fatal in young children, the elderly people and people with weakened immune systems, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

Symptoms include fever, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea, according to Mayo Clinic. They may appear a few days after eating contaminated food or take up to 30 days or more to show. Once the disease begins to spread, headaches, stiff neck, loss of balance and convulsions are also common.
