LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) — A company in Lawrenceville that supplies foods for some retail outlets has recalled numerous products, including sandwiches, parfaits, wraps, plates and salads, because of potential listeria contamination.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://bit.ly/r07bPa ) that the Lawrenceville operation of Chicago-based Flying Foods Group's recall is an expansion of one that began on July 19. The expanded recall includes products made for Core-Mark Atlanta Division, RaceTrac and Starbucks. Core-Mark Atlanta Division products were distributed to outlets in Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says production at the Lawrenceville facility has been voluntarily suspended pending an investigation.
No illnesses have been reported. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious infections in children, frail or elderly people and those with weakened immune systems.
