Twenty-six types of muffin products sold at popular retailers nationwide are being recalled over potential contamination of Listeria.

The contamination issue became noticeable during an environmental monitoring program, and no illnesses have been reported, the manufacturer of the muffins, Give and Go Prepared Foods, said in a notice published by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
