Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
No illnesses have been associated with Safeway or Carrs sandwiches. We are recalling the sandwiches out of an abundance of caution.
Customers who purchased the recalled sandwiches from the above-listed stores should discard or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Customers who have questions about the recall can contact Safeway at 1-877-SAFEWAY or Andrew and Williamson at 1-844-483-3864.
