Greencore, USA is recalling approximately 550 pounds of egg salad sandwiches.
The sandwiches contain eggs manufactured by Michael Foods Inc that are the subject of a previous recall due to possible contamination with Listeria Monocytogenes.
The firm is recalling the product because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, 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. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a health care provider.
The problem was discovered when Greencore, USA – Cincinnati, was notified by one of its suppliers that hard-cooked eggs were possibly contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and were being recalled by Michael Foods Egg Products Co. The egg salad sandwiches contain the recalled eggs.
The sandwich products were produced starting Jan. 18, 2012 and then distributed to retail stores in Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. The company has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.
