LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan deli is voluntarily recalling 17 more sandwiches after a line of its submarines was recalled because of possible listeria contamination.
Eastside Deli Supply Inc. of Lansing earlier this month recalled its 8-ounce beef-and-cheese subs because they could be contaminated with the food bacteria, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, seniors and others with weakened immune systems.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture detected the problem during a routine food inspection.
On Friday, Eastside Deli said was recalling all of its “Eastside Deli,” “Fresh from the Deli” and “In Your Belly Deli” products as a precautionary measure. The recalled sandwiches have sell-by dates up to and including April 4 and were distributed to convenience stores in parts of Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.
None of the newly recalled sandwiches have been shown to be contaminated and no illnesses have been reported, the company said.
Symptoms of Listeria monocytogenes include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
Consumers who bought the sandwiches are urged to return them to the store for a full refund. Those with questions can call the company at (517) 485-4630.
