LSG Sky Chefs Supply Chain Solutions announced that it is issuing a recall for the 7-Eleven Chicken and Hummus sandwiches the company produces for 7-Eleven stores in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Cleveland, Ohio, and the Buffalo, New York markets.

The hummus spread used in the sandwiches is subject to a national recall issued by Sabra Dipping Company due to possible listeria contamination. All 7-Eleven Chicken with Hummus sandwiches have already been pulled from affected 7-Eleven stores, and no other products or retailers are involved in this voluntary recall.

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.

Approximately 389 7-Eleven Chicken and Hummus sandwiches, packaged in a plastic clam shell, net et. 8 ounces, UPC 0 52548 58888 5, were produced and distributed to 7-Eleven stores in the Pittsburg, Cleveland, and Buffalo areas.

To date, LSG Sky Chefs has received no reports of illnesses associated with this sandwich.

Consumers who purchased this sandwich at 7-Eleven stores between November 18, 2016 and November 20, 2016 are asked to dispose of the product or return it to a 7-Eleven store for a full refund. Additionally, consumers should also look for a best buy date located on the back of the package of November 19, 2016 through November 21, 2016.

Consumers with any additional questions or concerns about this recall can call (214) 368-0909 for more information.
