Company Expands Recall of Sandwiches Due to Listeria Risk

Landshire of St. Louis, Missouri, is expanding its recall of Nike sandwiches due to the risk of Listeria monocytogenes, the Food and Drug Administration reported.

As a precautionary measure, the company is adding the Nike Super Poor Boy Sandwich as well as increasing the number of production dates of the Nike All-American Sandwich involved in the recall.

The expanded recall includes 17,305 cases of pre-packaged, individually-wrapped sandwiches. The following products are subject to recall:

-Landshire Nike All- American

-Landshire Nike Super Poor Boy

-Production lot codes affected by the recall are from 11 237 6 through 11 285 6

The sandwiches were distributed nationwide at convenient stores, wholesale food distributors and retail supermarkets. Consumers are urged to return the recalled products to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Though healthy individuals may only suffer short-term symptoms from listeria, such as fever, headache, nausea and diarrhea, the infection can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
