Routine sampling by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services for retail food establishments detected the problem.

No illnesses have been reported, according to the recall announcement, issued late Friday.

The recalled sandwiches were distributed nationwide to retail supermarkets.

The recalled Landshire Nike All-American sandwich is 7.25 ounces (206grams) and individually wrapped in a white white package with the UPC code 0 9748801741 5 and a lot number of 11 237 6 printed in black ink on the side or back of the package.

No other products or code dates are affected by this recall; the recall does not include the Red Packaged Nike Super Poorboy sandwich.

Consumers who purchased the recalled sandwiches are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Landshire, at 800-468-3354.

Listeria 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 pregnant women to experience miscarriages and stillbirths.
