Nike All-American Sandwiches Recalled for Potential Listeria

Landshire of St. Louis, Missouri is recalling 1,751 cases of its Nike All-American sandwich over concerns that the product is potentially contaminated with the dangerous, sometimes deadly, <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/topics/overview/listeria">Listeria Monocytogenes pathogen, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just announced.

The recalled Nike All-American Sandwich subject to the recall is the Landshire Nike All-American, which is a pre-packaged, individually wrapped, white package sandwich. The Nike All-American Sandwich weights 7.25 ounces (206 grams) and its UPC is 0 9748801741 5. The sandwiches involved bear lot number of 11 237 6, which is printed in black ink on the side or back of the package and were distributed nationwide at retail supermarkets.

No other products or code dates are affected by this recall and this recall does not include the Red Packaged Nike Super Poorboy sandwich.

To date, no illnesses have been reported; however, it is important to bear in mind that food borne illnesses take some time to manifest with symptoms following ingestion of contaminated food.

This recall was the result of a routine sampling conducted by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services for retail food establishments.

Consumers who have purchased the Nike All-American are urged to return the recalled sandwich to the place of purchase for a full refund. Landshire may be reached, toll-free, at 1.800.468.3354.

As we’ve long written, the Listeria monocytogenes pathogen can lead to the listeriosis infection, which is a potentially fatal infection that can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, abdominal cramps and pain, diarrhea, and nausea, especially in those with weakened immune systems, infants, and the elderly.
Vulnerable populations, such as the developing fetus, can suffer serious central nervous system problems. The infection can prompt premature births, or the death of the fetus via miscarriages and stillbirths.

Pregnant women are 20 times likelier to become infected. Listeriosis can also lead to hearing loss or brain damage in newborns, and can prompt neurological effects and cardio respiratory failure in adults.
