Red onions recalled over contamination risk

(CNN) -- Gills Onions recalled 2,360 pounds of diced red onions because of possible listeria contamination, the California-based company said Saturday.

The recalled onions were distributed to retailers in Canada and retailers and distributors in California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Idaho, Texas, Illinois, Michigan, Arkansas, Ohio, Tennessee, New Jersey, Georgia and Florida.

The product is beyond its use-by dates -- May 14, 15 and 17 -- and no illnesses and have been reported, the company said. It advised consumers to toss whatever recalled onions they might still have in the trash.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. It is rarely found in healthy people. However, it can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness and nausea.
