A group of seafood products is being recalled due to possible reports of onion contamination.

Harris Teeter, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Harris Teeter Supermarkets Inc., is voluntarily recalling eight products sold in its service seafood department, listed here, because they contain onions which may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious or life-threatening food borne illness in a person who eats a food item contaminated with it. 

Listeria bacteria are most commonly found in raw foods and symptoms may include fever, muscle aches, nausea or diarrhea.
