Target and Fresh Market recall egg salad sandwiches and salads over listeria risk

National News

(CBS News) — Deviled egg sandwiches — along with egg, tuna and Thai lobster salads — sold by retailers nationwide are being recalled because of possible listeria contamination. Target and Fresh Market are among the retailers to sell the recalled foods. 

The recalled items include Archer Farms-brand egg salad; Freskëtbrand egg salad, tuna salad, and Thai lobster salad; as well as Archer Farms-brand deviled egg sandwiches, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Friday. The recalled products were produced on June 18, 2019 at an Elevation Foods facility in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The problem was discovered after testing by Florida officials found three containers of egg salad contained Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in the young, frail or elderly. It can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women. Short-term symptoms in healthy people can include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. 

More than 1,000 cases of the product were shipped throughout the country, with no illness yet reported, according to the company. 

Consumers who bought any of the recalled products listed below are urged to return the items to the place of purchase for a refund, and those with questions can call: 866-761-9566, the company said.
