LSG Sky Chefs Supply Chain Solutions is recalling sandwiches it makes for 7-Eleven stores in Northern California and Nevada because they were produced with recalled Sabra Dipping Company hummus. That product was recalled earlier for possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. No reports of illness have been received to date, but the illness caused by this bacteria can take up to 70 days to appear.
The recalled product is Mediterranean Style Chicken with Hummus sandwiches. All of these products have been pulled from the affected 7-Eleven stores.
About 241 sandwiches were produced at LSG Sky Chefs facilities and sold at 7-Eleven stores in San Jose, California between November 18, 2016 and November 20, 2016. And 72 sandwiches were produced at the company’s Las Vegas, Nevada location during that same time frame. Look for a “best buy” date of November 19, 2016 through November 21, 2016 on the package.
If you purchased this product, do not eat it. Throw it away in a sealed container or return it to the store where you bought it for a refund. Then clean any areas where the sandwich was stored, including the fridge and freezer, with a mild bleach solution to kill any remaining 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, headache, muscle aches, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women must be especially careful because this illness can cause stillbirth and miscarriage. If you do get sick, see your doctor and tell him you ate this recalled sandwich.
