Sun Hong Foods, Inc. is recalling enoki mushrooms because they might be contaminated with listeria after four people died and 30 people were hospitalized with the infection, likely after eating the mushrooms, according to authorities.

According to the CDC, four deaths were reported in California, Hawaii and New Jersey. The CDC says it has received 36 reports of infected people from 17 states.

The CDC is warning people to not eat, serve or sell any of the recalled mushrooms.

The mushrooms, labeled "Product of Korea," are white and long with small caps. They were sold in 7.05-ounce/200-gram clear plastic packages with a green label.

Illnesses from the mushrooms began between Nov. 2016 and Dec. 2019.
