Greencore USA is recalling egg salad sandwiches, ham salad sandwiches, and seafood stuffing because Listeria monocytogenes was found in environmental sampling conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
No finished products have been found to have Listeria present and no confirmed illnesses have been reported.
The lots being recalled were distributed between September 24 and 27, 2017. The sandwiches were distributed to American Food and Vending, Hannaford Brothers, Target, and Turkey Hill stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and New York. The "Use By Date" of sandwiches is listed on the back panel of the sandwich. In addition to the ready to eat sandwiches, Hannaford Brothers Seafood Stuffing is being recalled with lot codes between 10/2/2017 and 10/19/2017. More label pictures and more product information is available online.
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, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
Customers who have purchased any of these products should not consume them. Customers may call Greencore at 630-786-2011 for more information.
