July 25, 2014 — Great American Marketing, a Texas-based establishment, has recalled 475 pounds of ready-to-eat foods, including sandwiches and wraps, due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that can cause severe food poisoning.
The recall was issued by the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS).
The agency collected a sample of a separate product on July 15 that tested positive for Listeria on July 21. The sampled product was held, but the plant continued producing food before a complete clean-up of production equipment.
Recalled products include:
- 7.4 ounce plastic-covered tray packages containing Chicken Caesar Wraps.
- 8.1 ounce plastic-covered tray packages containing Club Wraps.
- 10.5 ounce plastic-covered tray packages containing Ham and Cheddar Premium sandwiches.
- 10.5 ounce plastic-covered tray packages containing Turkey & Swiss Premium sandwiches.
The recalled products were made on July 15 and shipped to stores in Texas. Labels may have a sell-by date of July 26, 2014. The Chicken Caesar Wraps and Club Wraps have the establishment number “EST 31680” or “P-31680” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
Consumption of contaminated food can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, people with weak immune systems, and pregnant women. Symptoms of infection may include diarrhea, gastrointestinal problems, fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance, and more.
