Texas Company Recalls Some Ready-To-Eat Items

HOUSTON (AP) — Federal regulators say Great American Marketing of Houston has recalled about 475 pounds of ready-to-eat products due to possible listeria contamination.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday night announced the recall of sandwich and wrap items produced July 15 and shipped to retail sites in Texas. Authorities have no reports of anyone getting sick.

USDA officials say the case labels or packaging have a “sell by” date of July 26. The products have the establishment number “EST 31680” or “P-31680” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The list includes:

— 7.4 ounce plastic-covered tray packages containing chicken caesar wraps

— 8.1 ounce plastic-covered tray packages containing club wraps

— 10.5 ounce plastic-covered tray packages containing ham and cheddar premium sandwiches

— and 10.5 ounce plastic-covered tray packages containing turkey & swiss premium sandwiches.

USDA says a sample was collected July 15 and on Wednesday was confirmed positive for L. monocytogenes. The sampled product was held but the plant had produced additional items without a complete cleanup of the production equipment.

Consumers with questions can call: 713-682-6471.
