LSG Sky Chefs Supply Chain Solutions is recalling sandwiches it makes for 7-Eleven stores in Pittsburg, PA; Cleveland, OH; and Buffalo, NY because they were produced with recalled Sabra Dipping Company hummus. That product was recalled this week for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. No reports of illness have been received to date, but the illness caused by this bacteria can take 70 days to manifest.
The recalled product is Mediterranean Style Chicken with Hummus sandwiches. All of these products have been pulled from affected 7-Eleven stores.
About 389 sandwiches were produced and sold at 7-Eleven stores in those three cities between November 18, 2016 and November 20, 2016. The product should have a “best buy” date of November 19, 2016 through November 21, 2016. The sandwich is in a plastic clam shell, net weight 8 ounces, with UPC number 0 52548 58888 5.
If you purchased this product, do not eat it. Throw it away or take it back to the store where you bought it for a refund. Then clean any areas where the sandwich was stored with a mild bleach solution to kill bacteria.
If you ate this product, watch yourself for the symptoms of Listeria monocytogenes food poisoning for the next 70 days. Those symptoms are flu-like and can include a high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women must be especially careful because this illness can cause premature labor, stillbirth, and miscarriage. If you do get sick, see your doctor and tell her you ate this recalled product.
