The FDA issued a recall statement on Landshire’s Nike All-American and Super Poory Boy sandwich. The recall exapnds the FDA’s earlier recall of only the All-American sandwich and also expands the production dates recalled.
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) discovered the problem after two samples from the company’s production plant in Caseyville, IL. tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. The samples were collected from the Caseyville plant on October 21, 2011. A sample of the Nike All-American sandwich and a floor drain adjacent to the sandwich’s production line both tested positive for Listeria.
The expanded recall includes 17,305 cases. The products may contain Listeria Monocytogenes. Listeria Monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The initial recall was issued on October 20, 2011.
