The FDA said Listeria infections can cause symptoms like high fever, headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, but can cause more serious results, including miscarriages, stillbirth, and fetal infection in pregnant women.

No illnesses have yet been reported in connection with the edamame, and it should no longer be for sale in any stores.

The edamame was sold in Massachusetts, as well as 32 other states.

Customers who bought the recalled edamame should not eat it, and should bring it back to the store where it was bought for a full refund.
