On October 20, 2011, the FDA announced the recall of “Nike All-American” sandwiches, produced by Landshire, Inc. The FDA states that the sandwiches were sold at retail stores nationwide. Lynne Terry of the Oregonian reports that they were distributed by Walmart.
The recalled product consisted of bologna, salami, ham and Swiss cheese and a bun. The FDA reports that the product tested positive for listeria.
Routine product sampling conducted by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services on a sample of five sandwiches on Oct. 10 revealed the positive result.
To this point no illnesses have been reported. However, given that Listeria’s incubation period can stretch even beyond two months, we cannot be assured yet that no one will fall ill.
