Some Premo Brand sandwiches recalled for possible Listeria contamination

Posted: Updated:

Some Premo Brand pre-packaged sandwiches are being recalled after finding a possible Listeria contamination.

Lipari Foods, LLC issued the recall Tuesday for Premo Brand turkey and cheese wedge sandwiches because of the potential contamination.

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.

The products were produced on August 8 and distributed to food service and retail stores throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Tennessee, Wisconsin and West Virginia.

The company says no illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem and Lipari Foods began shipping the product on August 9, 2018.

The company says JLM brought the contamination to its attention after additional testing initiated by the Food and Drug Administration following a previous recall returned positive test results for potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes.

JLM says they employ a rigorous quality and testing program but are initiating this recall out of caution. They are working with JLM and the FDA to understand the cause of the situation and ensure that all affected product has been pulled from commerce.

Consumers who have purchased these recalled products should not consume them. Consumers should discard the products or return them to the point of purchase.
