FROM THE CONNECTICUT POST Stop & Shop issued a recall Wednesday for granola bars over a possible listeria contamination.

Customers can return the product, 7.4 oz Own Brands Sweet & Salty Almond Chewy Granola Bars, for a full refund.

The grocery chain said all dates codes are being pulled for product, which carries the UPC number 68826709280. However only products with a best by date of December 7, 2016 are impacted.

 Stop & Shop said the granola bars were processed on the same production line as sunflower seeds potentially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes by their supplier TreeHouse Private Brands.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause Listeriosis, a serious disease that primarily affects older adults, pregnant women, newborns, and adult with weakened immune systems, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
