Convenience-Store Sandwiches Recalled

10/09/2006
MUKILTEO, Wash. -- A Mukilteo company is recalling about 1,360 turkey sandwiches, because they might be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, according to an Associated Press report.

The sandwiches made by Jumbo Foods Inc. are called Tuscan Sun turkey sandwiches. The Listeria micro-organism can cause serious infections in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems, the report stated. It can also cause miscarriages among pregnant women. In healthy adults, symptoms include fever, headache, nausea and diarrhea.

The sandwiches, which were packaged in plastic, have a production code of 35E on the front label and were sold at convenience stores in Washington, Oregon and northern California from Sept. 4 to Oct. 2.

For a refund, customers can return sandwiches to the place of purchase.
