Listeria worries prompt recall of 12,600 Deli Express sandwiches

WASHINGTON (AP) _ A Minnesota company is recalling 12,600 Deli Express turkey and cheese sandwiches because of possible listeria contamination.

E.A Sween Co., manufacturer of the sandwiches that are found in refrigerated sections of convenience stores, said Wednesday that government testing had found a sandwich with listeria.

The recalled 4.2-ounce sandwiches, distributed nationwide in February, bear manufacture date code 450191. Consumers can return them to the store for a refund.

The Eden Prairie, Minn.-based company is cooperating with the Food and Drug Administration on the recall.

Listeria can cause short-term fever, abdominal pain and diarrhea in healthy people and more serious infections in pregnant women, the elderly and those with weak immune systems.

More information is available by calling the company at 866-787-8862, weekdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST.
