Nature Valley, Clif Bar, and Quaker are among the brands that have pulled products from US stores after sunflower seed provider, SunOpta, recalled sunflower seeds that could have been contaminated with listeria.

Pregnant women who consume listeria could experience muscle pain, backaches, and headaches.
