Scobee Foods Inc. Recalls Chicken Sandwiches

Mesquite, TX (SafetyAlerts) - Scobee Foods Inc. is recalling more than 10,000 chicken salad sandwiches that were distributed to stores in seven states because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The sandwiches were distributed through convenience stores under the labels `Scobee Deli Chicken Salad Sandwich' and `Express Deli Chicken Salad Sandwich'. The labels on both sandwiches have sell-by dates of July 14 or July 21.

The sandwiches were distributed in Texas, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.

Listeria monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a rare but potentially fatal disease. Symptoms include high fever, severe headache, neck stiffness, and nausea. Healthy people rarely contract the disease. Children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with weak immune systems are the most susceptible.

Consumers should return the sandwiches to place of purchase for a full refund. The company can be reached at (888) 726-9424 to answer any questions.
