Lipari Foods has recalled varieties of its Premo and Fresh Grab sandwiches because they may be contaminated with Listeria, the second recall by the company in two weeks.
The new recall is for sandwiches distributed to food service and retail stores in 12 states including Wisconsin.
Details, including the sandwich names, “Best By” dates, lot numbers and UPC numbers can be found here.
Last week’s recall involved wedge sandwiches that also went to those same states. Find details here.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Although healthy people may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
