Food Lion brand Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits recalled over listeria monocytogenes concerns

Published 02 January 2018

Food Lion has issued a recall of all code dates of its Food Lion brand Homestyle Buttermilk Biscuits after being notified by its manufacturer that the product may have been contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.

While there have been no reports of illnesses to date, the product is being recalled as a precautionary measure after T. Marzetti Company, the manufacturer of the product, has indicated a possible contamination issue with Listeria monocytogenes at one of its plants.

Food Lion has removed all affected product from its shelves and urges customers to return the product to their local Food Lion store for a full refund. Customers may also contact Food Lion's Customer Support Center at 1-800-210-9569.

Food Lion, based in Salisbury, N.C., since 1957, has more than 1,000 stores in 10 Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic states and employs more than 63,000 associates. By leveraging its longstanding heritage of low prices and convenient locations, Food Lion is working to own the easiest full shop grocery experience in the Southeast, anchored by a strong commitment to affordability, freshness and the communities it serves.

Through Food Lion Feeds, the company has committed to provide 500 million meals to individuals and families in need by the end of 2020. Food Lion is a company of Delhaize America, a U.S. division of Zaandam-based Royal Ahold Delhaize Group.
