If you're a fan of Mary B's biscuits (and who isn't?), you won't be able to find them in your frozen food aisles right now.

The popular brand of biscuits, sold by Hom/Ade Foods Inc., recalled the product from shelves because of potential Listeria contamination.

All brands of Mary B's with “best if used by” dates on the package through Sept. 23, 2018, have been recalled, according to a press release on Food Safety News.

Recalls over the last month also included biscuits under other brands like Food Lion, SEG and Southern Home, as well as T. Marzetti Company's Marshalls brand.

Hom/Ade Foods said the potential Listeria contamination came from another company in the food supply chain.

Retailers in 23 states, including Mississippi, are in the distribution area.

Hom/Ade Foods said no illnesses have been reported, but consumers are cautioned not to eat any of the product they already have purchased.
