WARREN, Mich. -- Lipari Foods LLC has recalled two brands of sub sandwiches from sister company JLM. The company voluntarily recalled its Premo Brand and FreshGrab turkey and Swiss sandwiches over a potential listeria contamination.
Stores in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Wisconsin and West Virginia received the sandwiches, which were produced on July 17. No illness had been reported as of July 19.
Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and life-threatening illnesses in children, the elderly, pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems; however, healthy individuals can also become ill.
JLM discovered the potential contamination during a routine environmental monitoring and product testing. The company has initiated this recall out of an abundance of caution, according to a statement from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
The FDA is also working with the Michigan Department of Agriculture to find the source of the organism.
Lipari Foods LLC is a food distributor based in Warren, Mich.
