May 6, 2017 (San Diego's East County) - A New Jersey company is recalling Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes, waffles and French toast due to a listeria contamination.

Pinnacle Foods issued the recall Friday night.  It affects products distributed in the United States and Mexico, but does not include dry mixes and syrups.

The company said it issued the recall after testing showed listeria monocytogenes in the plant environment.

"We are working in coordination with the Food and Drug Administration,” Pinnacle Foods said.

Listeria can be fatal to children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.  It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, though no incidents of illnesses have been reported.

Consumers can return affected products to the place of purchase for a refund, the company said.
