Company Announcement

Jumbo Foods Inc. of Mukilteo, WA has issued a voluntary recall of Tuscan Sun (TS) brand chicken salad sandwiches, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

The following affected sandwiches products were distributed exclusively by Jumbo Foods Inc to food service and retail stores in Arizona, California, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, Utah, Virginia, and Washington.
