A food distributor for QuikTrip convenience stores is recalling Po Boy sandwiches that were sold last month in Arizona and three other states.
Quik’n Tasty Foods Inc., a subsidiary of QuikTrip Corp., said Friday that the Po Boy sandwiches could be contaminated with the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes. The recall affects sandwiches with 101 N6 stamped on them. They were distributed to QuikTrip locations in Missouri, Kansas, Illinois and Arizona between April 18 and 29.
The recall came after a supplier notified Quik’n Tasty that the ham in the sandwiches could be contaminated.
No illnesses have been reported, but the bacteria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. Healthy people could suffer short-term symptoms such as fever, headache or nausea.
