GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Select prepackaged sandwiches by Fisher-Rex Sandwich Co. have been recalled, as they may contain listeria, according to a report by The Associated Press.
The sandwiches, sold at convenience stores, gas stations and other retail stores in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia, are identifiable by a seven-digit code, beginning with 01.
Products from the company with a five-digit code are not subject to a recall, the report stated.
