The products were distributed to retailers and distributors nationwide, including King Soopers stores in Colorado.

No reports of illness caused by the foods have yet been verified.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the listeria was detected through microbiological testing by Canadian health authorities. U.S. officials traced the contamination to a Kansas plant.
