The company believes that fewer than 1,087 cases of these products have been shipped. The salads and sandwiches were made at Elevation Foods’ Knoxville, Tennessee facility.

The recalled salads and sandwiches have “use by” dates printed on the side of each container. The lot number is printed on the side or lid. This recall applies only to the products with the specific lot numbers and use by dates listed below.

The recalled salads and sandwiches are:

  • Archer Farms-brand Egg Salad packaged in a 12-ounce clear, square plastic container, with Lot Number W1906042A, Use By 12AUG2019 (printed on the side of each container), and UPC number 085239018682, distributed nationwide;

Elevation Foods identified the problem after receiving positive test results for three containers of affected egg salad that were sampled and tested by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. If you purchased any of these products sold at Target, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed container or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.

Clean out your refrigerator with a mild bleach solution if you stored the sandwiches there. Listeria can grow at refrigerator temperatures.

If you ate any of these sandwiches, monitor yourself for the symptoms of listeriosis for the next 70 days. Those symptoms include high fever, stiff neck, severe headache, nausea, and diarrhea. Pregnant women can suffer miscarriage and stillbirth if they contact this infection, even if their illness is mild or they show no symptoms.
