Food in Texas is important for everyone.

However, not all food is safe from disease at some point. Recently, it was announced that an illness known as Listeria is growing throughout the Lone Star state. This has caused many to keep an eye out for any signs of the sickness.

But while many are doing their best to avoid the condition, other items may not be so lucky. Recently, certain food items in Texas are now no longer safe to eat due to a contamination. The food in question, has ties to the previously mentioned Listeria.

Here's what we know currently about the recall.
