Nine Alaska Safeway and Carrs Stores Voluntarily Recall Deli Sandwiches
Nine Safeway and Carrs stores in Alaska have voluntarily recalled deli sandwiches containing cucumbers because of the possibility of Salmonella Poona contamination.
What is Salmonella?
Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and at times fatal infections in individuals, especially those with compromised immune systems.
When a healthy person gets infected with Salmonella, one may experience nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. In rare event, Salmonella can enter the bloodstream causing severe illness such as arthritis, endocarditis, and aneurysm.
About the Deli Sandwich Recall
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Andrew and Williamson Fresh Produce has been in cooperation with Nine Alaskan Safeway and Carrs stores to voluntarily recall these made-to-order deli sandwiches that may be contaminated with Salmonella Poona.
The FDA urges anyone who purchased the sandwiches to either discard them or return them to stores for a full refund. So far, no illnesses have been associated with the sandwiches.
