Chicken Salad Sandwiches Recalled – Reach of Michael Foods Recall Expands

chicken salad sandwich.pngEarlier this week, the Grand Strand Sandwich Co. recalled approximately 2,800 chicken salad sandwiches due to ”concerns about possible listeria contamination” according to the Washington Post.

The company is based in Longs, South Carolina.  The sandwiches were distributed in the company’s home state as well as North Carolina and Virginia. The involved products were: Grand Strand Sandwich, Lunch Box Sandwiches and Country Harvest Sandwiches, and came in 4.5 ounce and 5 ounce packaging.

The Washington Post states:

According to the company, the sandwiches may contain eggs that were part of a previous recall from Michael Foods in Minnesota. The company that made the chicken salad for Grand Strand bought some of the hard cooked eggs from Michael Foods and isn’t sure whether they were used in the Grand Strand Sandwiches.  “Just to be safe,” Grand Strand said it was recalling some of its sandwiches.

There are no reports of illnesses in connection with the recall at this time.
