Archer Farms, Freskët recall salads, sandwiches

News

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that Elevation Foods is voluntarily recalling containers of Archer Farms-brand egg salad; Freskët-brand egg salad, tuna salad, and Thai lobster salad; and Archer Farms-brand deviled egg sandwiches due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. The recalled products were produced June 18, 2019.

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 FDA believes fewer than 1,087 cases of product have been directly shipped to retailer warehouses throughout the United States. No illnesses have been reported at this time.

The recalled products were manufactured at Elevation Foods’ Knoxville, Tenn. facility.
