Lipari Foods issues voluntary recall expansion on additional sandwiches
Lipari Foods is expanding its January 6, 2020 and January 13, 2020 recalls of Premo and Fresh Grab sandwiches to include all sandwiches with a Best By date of 2/6/20 and prior, due to potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism, which 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.
The products were distributed exclusively by Lipari Foods in Warren, Michigan to food service and retail stores throughout Alabama, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
This recall was brought to our attention by JLM, who is further expanding their recent recall to include additional sandwiches with additional Best Buy dates due to potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes. The company has ceased production at the producing facility while continuing to work in close collaboration with the FDA to further investigate the issue. No illnesses have been reported to date in relation to this recall.
