DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – It’s time to check your freezer.

A New Jersey-based food company is recalling Aunt Jemima frozen pancakes, waffles and French toast because they might be contaminated with Listeria. The products were sold across the U.S.

Pinnacle Foods Inc. said Friday it initiated the recall when testing indicated the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the plant environment. No illnesses have been reported.

Pinnacle Foods says it’s working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on the recall, which applies only to frozen products with “Best By” dates, not dry mixes or syrups.
