Great American Deli Recalling a Chicken Sandwich for Undeclared Allergens

Great American Deli of Tennessee is recalling 816 units of one of their sandwiches because it has the wrong ingredient statement, and therefore contains undeclared eggs and soy, two of the major food allergens. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

The product is Premium Chicken Salad Wheatberry Sandwich, with lot number 17 198 located on the top left front of each package. It weighs 6.4 ounces and is packaged in plastic containers. The product was distributed in Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Georgia to convenience stores and vending machines.

If you bought this product and cannot eat eggs and/or soy, do not consume it. Throw it away or take it back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Great American Deli Chicken Sandwich Recall

Some people may be allergic to just one type of food, and others to several. There are eight different foods that the U.S. government has declared allergens, that must be declared on package labels. They are: wheat, eggs, soy, milk, nuts, fish, peanuts, and shellfish.

The symptoms of an allergic reaction not only occur in people who know about their allergies, but can happen anytime to anyone. Mild symptoms include tingling of the lips, mouth, tongue, and throat, a runny nose, a cough, itching in the ears, hives, or a skin rash. More severe symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. Serious symptoms that require immediate medical treatment include loss of consciousness, a drop in blood pressure, turning blue, difficulty swallowing, and swelling of the mouth and throat that can prevent breathing.
