No illnesses have been reported so far, according to the company.

White Castle says a recent test by a third-party showed a presence of listeria in products from one of its manufacturing facilities. Production was halted at the facility as a result and sanitation efforts are underway, according to the company.

White Castle says customers who purchased any of the recalled items should dispose of them or return them to the store for a refund.
