tuna and egg salad sandwiches recalled

Listeria contamination in products presents potentially fatal symptoms.

CFS Operations Ltd. has issued a recall on 4219 units of Cloud’s Tuna Salad Sandwiches and Egg Salad Sandwiches because they could be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and maybe fatal infections in young children, elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.

The organism can cause short-term problems, such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. More serious, Listeria infection can also cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

These sandwiches in question are labeled with “Cloud’s Tuna Salad” and “Cloud’s Egg Salad” located on the product label. The product was packaged in flexible plastic film and plastic wedges. Recalled products are as follows: Cloud’s Tuna Salad Sandwich on White Bread, 5 oz., date code 62607-72507; and Cloud’s Egg Salad Sandwich on White Bread, 5 oz., date code 41907-72507.

The stores carrying the sandwiches are located in East Texas, West Louisiana and Southwest Arkansas.

So far, there have been no reports of illnesses related to the recalled product. CFS is working with the FDA to ensure that the problem has been resolved.

Consumers who have purchased Cloud’s Tuna Salad and Cloud’s Egg Salad sandwiches can return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.
