Anytime Sandwiches Recalled Due To Listeria Risk

Posted on

I have another recall to report to you this morning, this one involving a possible contamination of a food product, which makes it an especial cause for concern.

According to reports, the M.E. Thompson Company of Jacksonville, FL., has announced a recall of a sandwich product called Anytime Deli Turkey and Ham Sub Footlong Sandwiches.  The affected items have an expiration date between January 19 and January 22, so really, if you have the item in your possession, you probably shouldn’t be eating it at this point anyway.  The recalled sandwiches were shipped to convenience stores in Florida and Southern Georgia on January 2 and 3.  White butcher wrap distinguishes the product.

A sampling from the Florida Department of Agriculture showed that the sandwiches could be contaminated with listeria monocytogenes.  Listeria can cause serious, at times fatal infections to elderly people, children, or anyone with a weak immune system.  No illnesses have been reported at this time.

As a San Diego personal injury lawyer, I’m very concerned about food safety.  When you eat a product, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting ill because of said product.  Since I’m a personal injury lawyer in San Diego, I think it’s great to see recalls get issued before someone becomes unnecessarily ill or worse.
