Ultimate Meatless Burgers: Meat? No. Listeria? Maybe.

So maybe you don't have to ponder the ethical dilemma of eating meat when you tear open a package of Veggie Patch's Ultimate Meatless Burger.

You do have to ponder the risk of listeria.

Veggie Patch has announced a voluntary recall of two products, its Ultimate Meatless Burger and its Falafel, because of a risk of listeria contamination.

Specifically, Veggie Patch is recalling nine-ounce packages of its Ultimate Meatless Burger with a use-by date of January 12, 2013, and a UPC code of 6-10129-00211-5.

The recalled Veggie Patch Falafel packages have a use-by date of January 15, 2013, and a UPC code of 6-10129-06619-3.

Illinois is among the states to which the recalled packages were distributed.
