What’s the problem?
February 3, 2012 – The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced today that GH Foods, LLC is now recalling the following products because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes:
- DeLish brand Egg Salad on HoneyWheat Sandwich 8.5 oz.; UPC Code 0.49022-51925; Enjoy by Date 1 1/17/12 through 2/5/12
- DeLish brand Tuna Salad on Multigrain Bread Sandwich 8.5 oz; UPC Code 0.49022-51928.2; Enjoy by Date 1/22/12 through 2/5/12
These sandwiches were sold at Walgreens stores in California and are packaged in cellophane wrappers. Codes and Enjoy by Dates are listed on the Principal Display Panel.
The problem was discovered when GH Foods was notified by its supplier Michael Foods, Inc. that it had recalled hard-cooked eggs due to potential contamination by Listeria monocytogenes. The Delish brand sandwiches sold at Walgreens may contain eggs included in that recall. To date, there have been no illnesses reported in connection with this recall.
Listeria Food Poisoning (Listeriosis)
Listeria food poisoning (listeriosis) is caused by ingesting food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. Infections typically affect pregnant women, newborn babies, the elderly, and individuals with suppressed immune systems. Signs and symptoms of listeriosis may include:
- difficulty breathing
- poor feeding in newborns
The earlier listeria food poisoning is detected the better, so it is important to report any symptoms to your doctor immediately after experiencing them.
