GreenCore USA Recalls Sandwiches Because Of Possible Health Risk
by FDA
Posted: 2017-10-03 16:04:00 EST

Greencore, USA, LLC is voluntarily recalling egg salad sandwiches, ham salad sandwiches, and seafood stuffing as listed below. The products are being recalled because Listeria monocytogenes was found in environmental sampling conducted by FDA.

No finished products have been found to have Listeria present and no confirmed illnesses have been reported.

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.

Greencore is recalling lots distributed between September 24 and 27, 2017. 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. The “Use By Date” of sandwiches is listed on the back panel of the sandwich. In addition to fresh ready to eat sandwiches, Hannaford Brothers Seafood Stuffing is being recalled with Lot Codes between 10/2/2017 and 10/19/2017.
