Sandwiches Recalled Due to Listeria

On Sept, 29, 2017 Greencore, USA, LLC initiated a voluntary recall of egg salad sandwiches, ham salad sandwiches, and seafood stuffing as listed below. The products are being recalled because Listeria monocytogenes was found in environmental samples collected by the FDA. Additional FDA sampling of finished product tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes by FDA. No new lots of products are being recalled.

Greencore is investigating the cause and has implemented corrective actions.

As of September 29, all customers have been notified and instructed to remove and destroy impacted product. No product should be available for sale.

Consumers who have purchased these sandwiches and stuffing are urged to not consume the product and should dispose of the recalled products. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Listeria monocytogenes 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, Listeriainfection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Sandwiches were only distributed to American Food and Vending, Hannaford Brothers, Target, and Turkey Hill in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire and New York.
