Sandwiches Recalled due to Possible Listeria Contamination


Washington, DC: Grand Strand Sandwich Company of Longs, SC is recalling its 4.5oz and 5 oz Chicken Salad Sandwiches, with the following labels: Grand Strand Sandwich, Lunch Box Sandwiches, and Country Harvest Sandwiches because they have the potential to be contaminated with 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 health individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriage and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The recall came about when Bost Distributing our Chicken Salad manufacture bought some of the Hard Cooked Eggs that were produced by Michael Foods. Michael Foods has an ongoing recall on those eggs. Bost Distributing was unsure if the eggs from Michael Foods were used in our product, so just to be safe we are recalling the product.

According to Michael Foods, the recall was initiated after label testing revealed that some of the eggs within the recalled lot dates may have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. A recall of three lot dates was announced on Thursday, January 26, 2012. The recall was expanded on February 1, 2012 to include additional lot dates, one of which was received by Bost Distributing.
