7-Eleven Fresh to Go Sandwiches Recalled
WOODBRIDGE, Ill. -- Locally-based fresh food manufacturer H.C. Schau & Son Inc. are recalling 3,422 sandwiches that were distributed to 7-Eleven Inc. stores because they may contain undeclared pine nuts.
According to a company release, the Fresh to Go Tuscan Style Combo on Tomato Basil Bread sandwiches were sent to 7-Eleven stores in Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin. The product is sold individually in an 8-ounce pack with the UPC number 52548548322.
Only packs marked with the following 'best-by' dates are affected: Feb. 28, 2014, March 1, 2014, March 2, 2014, March 3, 2014, and March 4, 2014.
People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to pine nuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. To date, there have been no reported illnesses associated with the affected products.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered through a review of production records that the sandwiches were prepared using sun-dried tomato pesto that contained pine nuts. Subsequent investigation identified that the incorrect pesto was supplied to the company. The product labeling does not indicate the presence of pine nuts, according to the company's recall release.
