An audio version of this story.
Georgia is among the five states affected by a recall from Ruth’s Salads.
The Charlotte-based company says its 7-ounce containers of Original Pimento Spread might have fallen victim to listeria contamination.
This was discovered after a random test from the North Carolina Department of Agriculture.
Officials say if the label says the spread is from Lot 16, and has a sell-by date of April 30, the product should be returned for a full refund.
The other states included in the recall are North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee.
No illnesses have been reported thus far.
