Taylors Candy, Inc. of Alsip, IL under advice from its supplier is recalling Stuckey's bags of Sunflower Kernels because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes , an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
In a videotaped interview of Shante Thomas in 2011, the then 19-year-old Chicago woman told an evolving story about what she was doing the night a pregnant Alsip teen was killed, during which time a police investigator said she changed her story "three or four times." "I did not touch her," Cook County jurors heard Thomas say in the recorded interview, moments before she backtracked and admitted to touching 18-year-old Rosemary Newman in what she claimed was an attempt to stop a fight between the pregnant woman and father of Newman's child, Deandre Minkens.
