The same company that caused a recall at Starbucks is expanding its recall, according to news reports.
Sandwiches, plates, wraps, salads, and parfaits made by Flying Food Group in Lawrenceville, Georgia are being recalled to due contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.
No illnesses have been reported. The expanded recall includes products made for Core-mark, Atlanta Division, Race Trac, and Starbucks. Additional FDA and USDA regulated products included in the recall are such products as the “Sano Triple Cherry Yogurt Parfait,” chicken Caesar wrap, turkey quarter pounder, cobb salad, and “tarragon chicken salad sandwich.”
So far, no illnesses have been reported yet, however testing revealed the presence of Listeria in one of the products. According to news reports , the products associated with the Lawrenceville, GA facility have been recalled and a full investigation is underway.
As a Greenville personal injury attorney , I urge consumers to avoid these products. Listeria is a potentially fatal foodborne disease that is linked to miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. It can also cause high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Staphylococcus can cause serious gastrointestinal illnesses, including nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, and diarrhea. Both pathogens are more serious in the elderly and very young.
While we don’t handle this kind of recall we feel that it’s important to educate the community to help protect their health and safety. If you have been injured by a recalled product, you might wish to contact a Greenville personal injury lawyer who can help.
