Recalled Nike Sandwiches Distributed in Kansas
TOPEKA – Landshire is recalling Nike sandwiches that have been distributed in Kansas because of possible health risks.
Landshire, of St. Louis, Mo., is recalling Nike Super Poor Boy Sandwiches and Nike All-American Sandwiches.
“Consumer safety is a top priority of the Kansas Department of Agriculture,” said Adam Inman, food safety and lodging inspection and training manager for the Kansas Department of Agriculture. “We want to highlight this recall because of the wide distribution of the product in our state.”
While no confirmed illnesses have been reported, the products may contain Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes is 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 products are subject to recall:
Landshire Nike All- American
Landshire Nike Super Poor Boy
Production lot codes affected by the recall are from
11 237 6 through 11 285 6
The lot number is printed in black ink on the side or back of the individual packaged sandwich. The initial recall was issued on Oct. 20, with an expansion issued on Oct. 25.
The Nike Super Poor Boy sandwich may be sold in a 2 count pack and an 8 count pack.
Consumers who have purchased the Nike All-American or Nike Super Poor Boy are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Landshire, at 314-925-4009.
