Flying Food Group Recall Expands Again

Flying Food Group of Lawrenceville, GA announced Thursday that it is now recalling all of its federally regulated products — sandwiches, parfaits, wraps, plates, and salads — because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

This is an expansion of an initial recall on July 19, made at the request of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).  That recall was expanded by an additional 6,901 pounds of ready-to-eat meat products on July 26.

The potential for contamination was noted after sampling and testing conducted by the Georgia Department of Agriculture revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in one of the products.

Production of all products at the Lawrenceville facility has been voluntarily suspended pending a full investigation into the source of the problem.

The latest, expanded recall includes products made for Core-mark Atlanta Division, Race Trac, and Starbucks.

Core-mark Atlanta Division products were distributed to retail outlets in Alabama, Georgia and Florida. Starbucks products were only distributed to retail outlets in Alabama and Georgia. Race Trac products were distributed to retail outlets in Georgia only.

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.
