MG Foods of Charlotte, North Carolina, is recalling a variety of turkey sandwiches due to a potential contamination of Listeria monocytogenes.
According to a notice from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the products in question were distributed between March 3 and March 5, and packaged in clear plastic wedges and paper bags. The sandwiches were sold at distributors located at the Charlotte Douglas Airport and in vending machines and micro markets in business locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and West Virginia.
The recall was issued following a routine environmental testing, in which the company detected the presence of Listeria on surface areas where the recalled products were produced. The sandwiches were recalled “out of an abundance of caution” due to the potential that some of the products may be contaminated.
To date, no illnesses have been reported related to the consumption of these turkey sandwiches.
A listing of the specific turkey sandwich products to be recalled can be found in the recall notice on the FDA website.
Consumers who may have purchased these products are urged to discard any of the remaining products. Consumers may also contact MG Foods at +1.855.424.8390 for a full refund.
