Grand Strand Sandwich is recalling some of its Lunch Box Sandwiches due to possible listeria contamination

SandwichesGrand Strand Sandwich is recalling Lunch Box Italian Subs, Lunch Box Ham & Swiss Croissants, and Lunch Box Ham & Cheese Frozen Wedges due to a potential contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

On Jan. 3, the firm was notified by U.S. Food and Drug Administration that the swabs it collected from the meat slicing area on Dec. 11, 2018, test positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

The sandwiches were distributed from Dec. 17, 2018, through Jan. 4, 2019. They were packaged in clear plastic and sold mostly in convenience stores and vending machines located in the states of North and South Carolina.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, Listeria monocytogenes can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women.

Consumers who have purchased the sandwiches are urged to return them to the store where they were purchase for a refund, or they can throw the sandwiches away, the company advises.

Consumers with questions can contact Kirk McCumbee at 843-399-2999 Monday through Thursday 8 a.m.–4 p.m. and Friday from 8 a.m.–3 p.m. EST.
