Grand Stand Sandwich has recalled “Lunch Box Sandwiches” due to a risk of food poisoning with Listeria monocytogenes.
No illnesses have been linked to the recalled sandwiches, but infections with Listeria can be serious and sometimes fatal.
On January 3, the company was notified by the FDA that swabs collected from the meat slicing area during an inspection on December 11, 2018 tested positive for Listeria.
The products were distributed between December 17, 2018 and January 4, 2019 in North Carolina and South Carolina.
They were packaged in clear plastic, and sold primarily in convenience stores and vending machines.
The recalled sandwiches include:
|Italian Subs||7 oz package||0 67068 12222 8||35218|
|Ham & Swiss Croissants||5 oz package||0 67068 21217 2||34618|
|Ham & Cheese||4.5oz package||0 67068 12110 8||34618|
The symptoms of Listeria may not appear for up to 70 days, and typically include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. In pregnant women, Listeria illness can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, or infection of the newborn.
Consumers who bought these sandwiches are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund or they may discard the product.
