ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota food company its expanding its voluntary nationwide recall.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture says Parkers Farm took that action after the department determined that all products made at the company's Coon Rapids plant may have been contaminated with the Listeria monocytogenes bacteria.

The recall now includes all products produced under the Parkers Farm label, as well as a number of products marketed under other labels and produced at the Coon Rapids plant.

The recalled Parkers Farm products include peanut butter, bagel spreads, dips and spreads, and cheese.

The products are distributed nationwide in retail stores including Hy-Vee, Cub, Rainbow, Lunds/Byerly's, Target, Whole Foods, Jewel, Dominicks, Marsh, Price Chopper, Shop Rite, Nash Finch, Sam's Club, Costco, Safeway, Kroger, Walmart and Aldi.

No illnesses have been linked to the recall. The bacteria can cause listeriosis, a potentially serious disease.
