Second Packaged Sandwich Listeria Recall
The FDA and CDC have issued a recall of one lot of Premo Brand turkey and cheese wedge-shaped packaged sandwiches. The company sold the sandwiches in 11 states. This is the second sandwich Listeria recall the company has faced in less than a month.
A Listeria infection is a foodborne bacterial illness that can be very serious for pregnant women and people with impaired immune systems. Improperly processed deli meats and unpasteurized milk products breed the bacteria. Plus, it can survive refrigeration and even freezing. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms. This includes high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. However, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Listeria causes listeriosis, which infects 1,600 people and kills about 260 in the United States each year.
