SOUTH ELGIN, Ill. – Approximately 7,500 plastic-wrapped sandwiches made and distributed by IFS, based here, are being recalled from convenience stores and vending machines in six states due to the threat of infection by listeria bacteria, The Associated Press reported.
The sandwiches are labeled Cuban, Italian Asiago and Buffalo Chicken, the report stated.
The company told the AP that no illnesses have been reported, but some sandwiches have tested positive for the bacteria, which can cause serious infections in young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems. Healthy people who are infected can suffer fever, headache, nausea and diarrhea, the report said.
