WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – A popular line of white cheddar popcorn carried at local Giant Food stores has been recalled due to possible contamination.

Dale and Thomas Popcorn is recalling a limited number of ready-to-eat bags of select flavors of their Popcorn, Indiana brand products after discovering a possible Listeria Monocytogenes contamination.

All sell-by dates of the following product are considered potentially harmful and should be thrown away if purchased:

• Dale & Thomas Indiana white cheddar popcorn, UPC 84357100078, 9 oz.

No illnesses have been reported but customers who have purchased the product should bring their receipt of purchase to their local Giant for a full refund.
