Grand Food Inc. Recalls Vending Machine Foods

Minneapolis, MN  (SafetyAlerts) - Grand Food Inc. has voluntarily recalled all of their ready-made sandwiches, salads and bakery products sold through vending machines because one product sample tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes.

The recalled product was distributed in Minnesota and to one vender in North Dakota and one vender in South Dakota.   These products bear the Julian date codes of 0109 to 0119.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with these products and subsequent testing has returned negative results for Listeria.

Consumption of food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, an uncommon but potentially fatal disease. Healthy people rarely contract listeriosis. Listeriosis can cause high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, and nausea. Listeriosis can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as serious and sometimes fatal infections in those with weak immune systems--infants, the frail or elderly, and persons with chronic disease, with HIV infection, or taking chemotherapy.

Consumers with questions should call Grand Foods at 612-623-7655.

Notice of this product warning was sent via email to SafeMail subscribers May 1, 2000.
