(CNN) --

More than 400 food products sold under dozens of brand names have been recalled due to possible Listeria contamination, the US Food and Drug Administration announced Friday.

The Fresh Ideation Food Group LLC recall includes sandwiches, salads, yogurt, wraps and other ready-to-eat items, which are sold in nine states and Washington, from January 24-30.

The Baltimore company said Friday that no illnesses have been reported so far.

“The recall was initiated after the company's environmental samples tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes,” Fresh Ideation Food Group said in its recall announcement.

Eating food contaminated with Listeria can cause a serious infection that can lead to symptoms such as fever, headache, diarrhea and vomiting, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC.


It is most likely to sicken pregnant women and their newborns, adults over 65, and people with weakened immune systems, according to the CDC.

“An estimated 1,600 people contract listeriosis each year and about 260 die,” the agency says.

The recalled foods were distributed in Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia, according to the FDA.

The products, which included items such as bacon, egg and cheddar muffins, breakfast croissants, tuna and chicken sandwiches and fruit cups, were sold in stores, vending machines and transportation providers, according to the company.

“All recalled products have a Fresh Creative Cuisine label and/or identifier at the bottom of the label with the Fresh Creative Cuisine name and a fresh or sell-out date of January 31, 2023 through February 6, 2023,” the company said.
